When I was little... My parents used to threaten my brother and I about... Well, their choice of a babysitter for us. "If you don't stop misbehaving," they'd say, "We'll get Freddy Kreuger to come babysit you!" And we fell for it. Every time. It wasn't until later that I realized Freddy exsisted only in the movies...

I always wondered how James Bond could tell his real name to everyone and why the bad guys never recognized him from the movies. Maybe they just didnt know the movies...

When our city's theatres began showing X rated movies, I always knew there were
naked people in them but I had no idea what else ever went on in those movies.
I figured it was otherwise just a regular movie but no one bothered to wear clothes. I figured the worst that ever happened is that the men and women
pointed to each other's parts and giggled.

I used to think that as movies "got older" they turned to black and white, like the color all faded out with time or something. Before this I thought that "the olden days" were really black and white. Like I asked my dad, "wasn't it boring to live in black & white?"

I was 5 when the Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night" was released, and my parents took us to see it at the drive-in. I remember thinking for a long time that it was a documentary. (I didn't know what a "documentary" was, but I thought the film was real, unscripted, and just a bunch of cameras following them around)

A friend of mine said when he was 15: How could they film "Schindler's List" when it happened? (since it is in black and white)

For some reason I used to think that all films were 90 minutes long and I remember having an argument with my room mate at college when he tried to convince me otherwise. I must have been at least 18 at the time! Having now seen several films which are shorter/longer than 90 minutes I've realise the error of my ways...

When I was about 3, I saw the movie Fantasia. I was horrified by the big monster guy, and I thought that if I didn't close my eyes when I saw him he would jump out of the tv screen and feed me to the broom people, who I was also very scared of.

when I was younger I didn't understand why non-cartoon movies had a cast list in the end. I belived that everyone in the movie had that name they were called in it.

Once I wrote a letter to the actor Devon Sawa, who I was in love with at the time, and threw in into the fire thinking that if Mary Poppins got that letter from Jane and Michael Banks he would get it as well.
