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.

When ever I saw a movie, I thought the film crew filmed a child for the necessary scenes and then filmed the rest of the movie when the kid grew up years later. So I always thought it took ages to make movies, so I never became an actor :)

I used to believe that EVERYTHING we did was being filmed for someone somewhere to watch as a movie

my favourite super hero was the green lantern so I asked my parents for a ring. they took me shopping and I found one that was shaped like home plate and had my initial carved on it.
when i was about 8 or 9 i was allowed to stay home for a couple of hours without a babysitter. so I zoned out in front of the television and flipped through the stations using the big brown box we used to have as a remote (3 rows of 12 or so rectangular buttons that you pressed down to get a new channel)
I ended up partially watching the Exorcist by myself. i say partially because i would press any other button quickly when it started to get too intense. However, I did manage to see enough of the movie to scare me into sleepless nights for almost a week. I would pull the covers over my head and clench the fist with the ring so tight that I would imagine a green lantern-type force field would suuround my bed - as long as my fist remained clenched.

When I was 5 my dad asked me if I wanted to see really scary looking goblins. I asked if they looked real (cuz I was curious as to if goblins were real.) and he led me to believe that the golblins WERE real. By now I was REALLY curious so I said yes lets see them. So my dad put 'March of the Wooden Soldiers' on (VHS) and we watched it until the goblins came out. I remember crying because I wanted to see REAL goblins...not a bunch of guys in suits.

My parents had me convinced that the Wizard of Oz went from BW to color to BW because they invented color movies after they started filming and only had a limited amount to use in each movie made so they used what they had and went back to black & white to finish it.

My parents allowed me to watch Hitchcock's "The Birds" when I was about 7 years old. To this day I so believe, in the fall when the birds are migrating and sitting on wires, that they are about to attack that the hair on the back of my neck stands up and I have a compulsion to RUN to safety.

I saw a film about D'Artagnan and the three musketeers and thought for some time, that it was based on the cartoon Dogtanian.

When I first saw Star Wars at home on video I announced my contention that the green bounty hunter's name was "Quachy Nose" because that's the sort of nose he had. It confused me to no end when I got the action figure and saw the name "Greedo" on the package.

You know the film 'The wizard of Oz'? It starts in black and white but changes to glorious technicolour when Dorothy arrives in Oz?

I used to think they'd started to make the film before colour was invented and just decided to start using it once it was available!

I used to believe that a 'Lifesaber' (the glowing weapons in Star Wars) were actually called 'Life-savers'. I was so confused why someone would want to hit an enemy with something that was called a Life-saver. Sadly, I'm 14 and I just found out a couple months ago.

I used to believe that when you go to the movie theaters, the actors were right behind the screen acting out the whole movie.

My mom forced me to watch those Nightmare on Elm Street movies when I was 5 and it scared me to death. Inspired by a sceen in the movie, I was afraid to take a shower/bath for I feared that Freddy would pop out of the shadows and slit my throat.
