WHEN I WAS 5 OR 6 AFTER THE FIRST TIME I EVER SAW THE WIZARD OF OZ I THOUGHT THAT IF YOU STOOD IN THE MIDDLE OF A DUST DEVIL YOU WOULD GET SWEPT UP AND TAKEN TO OZ. NOT JUST ANY ONE OF THEM I THOUGHT THEIR WAS THE "MAGIC ONE" AND THAT AFTER DEDICATEDLY STANDING IN THE CENTER OF EACH ONE I WAS BOUND TO FIND THE RIGHT ONE. WHEN MY BROTHER FIGURED OUT WHAT I WAS DOING AND TOLD ME HOW STUPID I WAS FOR IT, I WAS ALMOST AS CRUSHED AS WHEN I FOUND OUT THERE WAS NO SANTA.

When a movie covered a large number of years, I believed that a portion was filmed, then several years passed for the actors to grow older before finishing the movie. How else could the people grow old?

I used to believe that when people kissed in movies they weren't really kissing. I thought they just pressed their cheeks against each other and moved their heads around so it looked like they were.
I thought kisses were reserved for special occasions, like for when you got married or found a boyfriend (in real life, of course).

I used to think that black and white movies were shot in color. Wherein the character's skins were painted white and the director would wash the paint off after shooting.

When my parents took me to see my godfather I got really scared because I thought he would be a gangster and he would kill me. I think I overdosed on Hollywood.

I used to believe that all movies were documentaries, real things that had been filmed when they happened. I always marvelled that they had such great camera technology in ancient Egypt, but rode in chariots because they didn't have cars.

I used to believe the D in the Disney logo was a backwards G. I never understood why.

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.

I used to think dream sequences in movies were actually filming someone's dreams.. I thought that was a really cheap way to make movies!

Whenever the subject of the historical Titanic comes up, someone makes a joke about the death of Leonardo DiCaprio. Because of this, I used to believe that DiCaprio was the name of an actual famous person who died during the sinking of the real Titanic.

I thought this for several years, until one day I saw the poster for the movie, with DiCaprio's name on it... at which point I somehow concluded that they got a descendant of the historical DiCaprio to play him in the movie. I don't remember when I finally figured out that there was no historical DiCaprio, just the actor.

In childhood, I waited behind the theatre, after the Cinema, hoping to see the artists came out .

For many, many years I thought that when the movie stars kissed on tv, the women became pregnant, and that is why you wouldn't see them in a movie again for a long period of time. Took awhile to have that baby! :)

I used to believe that Orson Welles (the filmmaker) had also written the famous books "1984" and "Animal Farm", which recently I found out were in fact written by George Orwell (the actual author). And "by found out" I mean just ten minutes ago.

While in San Antonio on business a few years ago I found a "Duke Skywalker" T-shirt for my stepfather, a Star Wars fan, that said "May the Horse be with you." My stepfather was very entertained -- my mother stared in perplexity because that's what she always *thought* they were saying, and there never was any horse in the movies...

When seeing films from the advent of motion pictures, I assumed that everybody used to walk differently than we do now, and that's why people's movements were so jerky. It was years later I learned it was the difference in the film equipment used.

When I was young, I believed that the special effects in movies were real. I couldn't understand why movies had such cool things like robotics, etc. But for some reason we weren't allowed to have things like that in everyday life. (Arm got cut off? No problem! We can rebuild it. We have the technology!) :)

I used to believe White Christmas was an hour and a half of TV fuzz. I couldn't imagine why everybody liked the film so much.
