When I was three years old my siblings had a movie night where they showed the movie "Poltergeist." It wasn't until my teens that I wasn't afraid of the electronic "snow" on an unused television channel.
Patch from Santa Clause The Movie was real.
I thought Han Solo was Hans Olo. Who ever heard of someone named "Han" anyway?
I used to believe that movies were made in the exact order shown on screen.
I used to think it would take years and years to make films that way.
I thought that one scene was filmed then everyone packed up and moved to another location or whatever to film the next scene.
It wasn't until I saw a 'behind the scenes' programme on telly showing that they filmed all their scenes at the one location and then moved on.
Then it clicked.
Sadly this wasn't till in my teens.
When quizzed about what each of the characters in Wizard of Oz had wanted (e.g. scarecrow wanted a heart, I think), my younger brother insisted the lion wanted curry (instead of courage).
After I saw Star Wars for the very first time, I thought Luke Skywalker was going to get together with Princess Leia, and was really gutted because I fancied her. I didn't even realise that they were related until three years later, and then I got jealous of Han Solo.
I used to believe that the cowboys in westerns that got shot up in gunfights were actors who didn't want to live anymore. So the film makers paid their family so that they could film them being shot.
When watching Flash Gordon (the film) my Mum told me that the theme music was by Queen.
For years I thought she meant *the* Queen
