When I was a kid I used to believe that (whether or not you were watchiing a color or black & white television) when Dorothy got to Oz you would see it in color.
I was five years old when the live action Flintstones movie came out. I actually thought that they had filmed it in the stone age! I thought "Rosie O'Donnel (she played Betty Rubble) must be REALLY old!!!" I got everything cleared up a while later.
the first movie I ever saw with Johnny depp in it was Edward scissorhands when i was 6. For the longest time I thought the scissorhands were his actual hands.
In Mary Poppins, I understood that Dick Van Dyke played both the roles of Mr. Dawes, the old man who ran the bank and Bert, the Chimney Sweeper. However, I thought they filmed the scenes when he was a young chimney sweep, then waiting 60 years to film the scenes where he was the old man. I don't know why it didn't occur to me that they'd put him in makeup to make him look old, or why I didn't take into account that if 60 years had passed, why all of the other characters still appeared not to have aged.
My brothers and I used to have lots of sleepovers with my cousins when we were little. On one such sleepover, my aunt put in a movie for us to watch, and the copyright notice displayed at the beginning of the video. Being unable to read, I asked my aunt what those words said. She replied, "'If you talk during this movie, it will turn off automatically.'" To this day I can't stand it when people talk while we're watching a movie.
My family and I were stranded in Delaware when our international flight was canceled. My parents took my brother (age 6) and me (age 8) to the movies...they picked Pretty Woman, not knowing what it was about. I thought throughout the whole movie that Julia Roberts was Richard Gere's secretary. Needless to say that when I grew up and realized what she really was, I was shocked!
After I watched Star Wars I was convinced that Luke Skywalker was going to come get me and train me as a Jedi.
When I saw the original "Amityville Horror" film, it was the first time I had heard the name "Jodie"--the name the daughter gives the evil demonic pig. For years after that I believed anyone named "Jodie" was evil.
When I was young and they showed nudity on TV and in movies, I didn't think that the actors would want their private parts to be filmed on camera, so I thought that during those scenes they would wear clothes over themselves that looked exactly like private parts.
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)
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)
When I was pregnant my 7 year old cousin had a hard time understanding how I got into an 18 movie with my 'baby'.
when i was little i wanted to go to japan and see godzilla and king kong. then my mom told me they were just in costumes. i remember i was shoked at this
Coming from a small town with small cinema 1 screen managed by a middle aged man and lady (husband & wife) when the programme started with the adverts
Pearl and Dean. For many years i thought that the old couple were called Pearl and Dean and addressed them as such when i saw them in the foyer etc
after i saw the Indiana Jones, Temple of Doom movie, i was terrified for days that the mean man in the movie was going to jump thru my window and take my heart out.
Once me and my brother accidently walked into the X-rated section of the movie store, of course we didn't see the sign really high out of view that said "ADULTS ONLY". When I looked at the cover of these films I thought that they were exercise tapes like my mom had because the men and woman on the covers were barely wearing anything!
I used to think that Jawas(from Star wars) were real and from some far off country and would fix your tv n stuff.
My mom thinks im cool.
I thought there was only one copy of a movie and you had to wait til it got to your town,
I used to believe, after watching "The Blob" at a young age, that having nothing touch the floor (i.e.- my bed covers) would keep it from oozing onto my bed at night. That fear diminished, however, during the winters, since the Blob couldn't survive in the cold.
I saw Batman when I was eight. It completely freaked me out, because here was this human guy, not in any way superhuman, leaping around in tights of a night. It made me suspicious. I suspected several adults of being secret vigilantes.
