After seeing Mary Poppins, I immediately went home, grabbed an umbrella and began practicing to fly with my umbrella by jumping off the couch and holding my umbrella. I would measure how far I jumped each time and actually believed I would eventually fly.
My Nephew Stephen used to always ask if he could watch on VHS the Movie Prince Of Pizza. This was actually The Prince Of Egypt and when He got older he would get annoyed at us when we kept asking him to repeat it, because he thought we were making fun of him.
I used to believe that if a movie showed a character as a kid, and then showed them older, that they had had to wait for the actor to grow up in order to film the rest of the movie. So basically, I thought a lot of movies took 10 or 12 (or 20) years to make.
The very first movie I saw in the theatre was E.T. I was very distressed as I thought E.T. was going to come out of the Exit doors and get me!
I used to beleive that because cartoons were drawn, films were too. I used to think that they used 'special pens' to do this.
I always thought that the celebrities I saw at the theaters or on TV were really tall. Every single one of them I thought were at least 6 feet tall or taller. I didn't really think of them as real people.
When i was little i used to think the screens in the movie theater were HUGE ones of those TV VCR mixes. I thought there were HUGE videos that a whole army of people would have to carry in. I also thought there were buttons on the bottom, so one time when the movie stopped due to "technical difficulties" i ran up to the screen and searched for a play button. needless to say, i didnt find it.
When I was little I thought that videotapes worked by sending a signal to the actors who would then quick get ready and perform the movie for you. If you pressed pause, they would stand totally still, and if you pressed rewind they would do it all backward.
I used to believe that films were real and so I would be terrified to see a scary film as I thought that the charactors would come and "get me" at night if I didn't think that the film was good needless to say i didn't see many films as a child and still have a problem with horror films to this day!
I used to believe that in movies, the same person played himself that of when he was a kid. I had thought that they actually waited til that person reached that age to continue filming again.
when I was small, i used believe that a soundtrack from a movie was everything audio related, such as the talking, the birds chirping etc... as well as the songs
When I was little, I used to believe that, when I watched a movie, every person that I saw was a real (small) person that was somehow magically stuck inside that tape and forced to perform the exact same thing the exact same way over and over again. I always refrained from rewinding or fast forwarding the tape because I thought it meant that all the people had to do everything really fast.
When I saw movies or t.v. show had a character who aged significantly, such as from a child to adult, I thought they were filmed over a long period of time.
I used to think that in movies when a character starts out as a baby/kid and then it goes into the future that they actually had to wait for that baby/kid to grow up before they could film anymore. I remember watching forest gump and thinking that it must have taken 50 years to make that movie!
My brother somehow got the idea that Daley Thompson played Gus in Superman III, & that Superman was drinking vinager in the bar scene.
If I ever was inside a plane, i used to look through the window and try to find Mary poppins living on top of the clouds!
I used to beleive that in order to rewind a film the actors would have to re-act the whole movie backwards.
I used to think that at the movie theatres, the actors were just acting behind the screen.
When I was little, I watched the movie "Iron Giant" and when the missile was launched, the kid said that everybody was going to die. I thought missiles actually killed everybody on Earth.
When I was five or six, I loved to watch the movie Ghostbusters 2, but when the scene with the ghost train in the sewer came on I thought that the train would come through the TV unless I hid under the bear rug in the center of the room.
