When I was a kid and watched Star Wars for the first time with my dad (I was about 6) I still couldn't read very well so he read the opening text out loud. At one point it mentions the "evil galactic emperor" but for some reason I misheard it as the "evil elastic emperor" and imagined he was like an evil Stretch Armstrong type guy.

I used to believe that when someone was killed in a movie, they were killed for real. I assumed they had to film the entire movie except the death scene and then hope that scene went perfectly well. Otherwise they'd have to get someone new to play the person who died and shoot the whole thing all over again. Similarly - if there was a kid who grew up in the movie, they had to wait for that kid to grow up for real.

For a long time I thought Alfred Hitchcock directed the movie Jaws. In fact I didn't realise the truth until I was 18 and someone corrected me..

I used to believe that all the people killed by King Kong in the 1980's movie were really killed because they were condemned criminals on death row that were going to be killed anyway.

I use to believe that Jaws in the original movie was an enormous submarine decorated to look like a shark, and that when any actor was eaten by Jaws they would live in there for the rest of the making of the movie.

I also used to believe that America's Independence Day was the actual liberation of America from aliens thanks to the movie Independence Day. I was quite young at the time, if that's any excuse.

I remember as a kid I saw an ad for the movie "The Bridges of Madison County" and I thought the whole movie was just 2 hours of pictures of bridges! Needless to say it sounded like the most boring movie ever!

When I was little, I would watch action movies with my dad. I used to think that people who were shot died for real, and always wondered why an actor would agree to die for the sake of a movie. I then concluded that the director must pay them millions of dollars and let them live for a little while with big houses and fancy cars so they wouldn't be sad when they had to die at filming.

When I was younger I remember asking my grandmother why old films were in black and white. She said that ppl used to see in black and white, now in colour and in the future we would be able to see through things. I was so excited about this!

When I was little I used to believe that when movies portrayed an actor in many stages life, they started filming when the actor was younger and then resumed filming when the actor was grown up.

I used to believe that on films when the cast came up on the end of films 'in order of appearance' it meant how good-looking they were. I always got confused watching the hunchback of notre dame, where frolo came before phoebus!

When I was a child I used to believe that Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang was the most amazing movie ever - when I went back and watched the film as a teenager and realized that the entire film had been a dream sequence, my heart broke a little.
