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).

I saw Superman 2 when I was about 3, and I remember it being late at night when I got to bed. At the end, Superman flies round the world, and I remember spending a good while looking at the night sky to see if I could see him.

When my mom told me that they "brought out" Lady and the Tramp once again, I thought that there were men walking around the neighborhood with carts (similar to the ones at the beginning of Walt Disney's Beauty and the Beast) full of video tapes of the movie. Therefore, she had to go and buy one before they were all gone.

When I was about three, my brother would always make me watch Star Wars with him. He would pause the movie and ask me the characters' names, and I would say them. When he told me Luke Skywalker's name, my first response was, " Can he walk on the sky?" I believed that he could walk on the sky until I was about eight years old.

When i was little i used to think that actors actualy had to grow into the parts that they played , for instance if the movie started of with a character as a little girl they had to wait for her to grow up so they could film those scenes , i have no idea where that came from, cause really nothing backs that up ! but the whole concept of other actors and makeup just wasn't gettin through.... but its ok after my mum nearly wet herself laughing she set me straight !!!!

I used to believe up until the age of ten that when you wached a movie, it was live-acted. A little signal would be sent to some studio somewhere, where all the actors were, and they would start acting the movie you were watching. If you paused it they all had to stand still and wait till you hit Play again. I always wondered how if two people were watching different movies with the same actor in it, how the actor could act two movies at once and appear to only be doing one at a time. I also wondered why they never messed up a line or forgot to do something.

When I was little I loved the movie Mary Poppins. I thought if I took my pink umbrella outside and the wind picked up just right I could fly like her. Fortunately I didn't do anything crazy like jump off the roof of the house.

When I was little and saw a black and white film I thought that the actors actually had black and white vision and not color. I thought that color didnt exist in their world.

The first time i went to the cinema i went iwth my family and we sat at the very back. i wanted to get up to go to the bathroom but my brother said that if i get up i might block the projector and the people in the movie would pop out and get me coz i ruined their movie...
i was around 13 when i realised that wasnt true.

After watching the movie of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the original 80's version) I was convinced shredder and his evil mutants were going to appear out of a sewer from my bedroom floor. The fact my house was sitting on a massive concrete slab didn't factor into it. I was terrified for years after that........

When I was 9 I watched Jarassic Park. It was the first film I ever saw when people die. So I thought of this theory that what happened was that they got paid lots of money then a year later the scenes were shot and they died. I asked my mum about this and she assured me they didn't die and she showed me the 'Making of the film' extra which explained the special effects.

I used to think that in movies or TV shows with flashbacks to the character's youth, that they had actually begun filming the show back when the actor was a child and resumed filming the rest of it when he or she was grown up. I always wondered how they knew that person was going to grow up to be an actor and want to do the rest of the movie. Or I marveled at the foresight of the filmmaker to start making the movie before he knew the rest of the story.

When I was little and I would watch a movie that a character grew up in I thought it actually took a lifetime to film the movie. I didn't know they actually used different actors/ actresses.

When I was really young I was obsessed with weddings, and wanted to be a wedding planner. I was always disappointed when they didn't show entire weddings in movies/tv; there would be the bride walking down the isle, and maybe the shot after the wedding. I decided that it was because, if they filmed the whole wedding, the actors would be legally married.
