...that everything was black and white pre-1950's and that's why movies from that time weren't in color.

I was convinced that disney movie characters were real people. After watching the Little Mermaid, I would always try opening my eyes and singing underwater, and was so sad when i couldn't do it! The weird thing was that it was only disney movies, never television cartoons.

I used to think that when I was watching a movie, it was happening live. For example, I use to think they always shut down the city of New York everytime I wanted to watch Home Alone

When i was younger i used to think the WARNING messages at the beginning of movies for copyright reasons were actually urgent news messages broadcasting live to tell us important things. I was so freaked out cuz i couldn't read yet and didnt know what sort of dangers to watch out for!

I used to believe that whenever someone got shot in a movie, they really died. They sacrificed their life for their art.

When I was little I believed that old movies were in black and white, because the world used to be black and white.

I used to believe that there were little tiny men in the VCR that moved the wheels around the tapes I watched...This led to many destroyed VCRs while I tried to meet them.

When I first watched Jurassic Park I thought that in only a few years we would be able to clone dinosaurs for real and I remember looking through a book about dinosaurs trying to pick which one I wanted for a pet!

I believed the world was black & white before 1950, and that the Wizard of Oz was shot during the transition. When I asked my Dad if that was true, he wasn't listening and responded "Yes". So for years, I believed it.

After seeing 'Grease' when I was little, I kept expecting people to break out in song and dance while we were in public - especially when we'd go to the county fair. I even tried starting it a couple times and was confused when no one joined in.

I thought that when there was a flashback scene in a movie they would shoot those scenes first when the actor was young and then wait twenty years for them to grow up to finish the rest of the movie.

When I was 7, I watched the movie, "Arthur locked in the library," and it scared me so much that I refused to go into libraries because I thought that if you went in, you would get locked in and get eaten by an evil grandfather clock. I also thought that the aforementioned clock would kill you if you sat on the toilet for too long.

I used to believe that those movie previews shown on tv were like a puzzle, and if you were to gather each different one together and arrange the clips in the right way, you would have the whole movie.

When watching appolo 13, I felt terribly sorry for the man called Housten; everyone seemed to want him to solve all their problems!
I believed this until an embarrassingly old age.

I used to believe they used special effects to make movie kisses look real, since obviously they couldn't be forcing actors to really kiss people they weren't in love with.

I used to believe that actors whose characters died in live-action movies were actually killed in real life. For example, in a James Bond movie each anonymous henchman who was shot was a real person who was completely fine with being killed for the sake of the film. I always grappled with the question of how these people would be paid, and I concluded that if the actor agreed to die for the movie the producers would pay off any debts of the family members.

When I watched the original Star Wars trilogy on VHS as a kid, I believed that the actors were inside of the tape, and when I rewound the tape, it would make them do the scene again, therefor making them mad. I didn't rewind the tape that much after that.
