When I first saw the film Gandhi advertised at a cinema, I thought it was a film about a friend of mine whose surname was Gandhi.

I always felt really akward eating while I watched a movie. I thought that only my favorite actors could see me and that would be rude to eat while they talked. ie- Don't eat while Davy Jones is talking on Pirates of the Caribbean, he can see me.

I actually believed the movie E.T was real when i was like 5, and thought alien ships landed on Earth all the time. Freaked me out for years. Now even as an adult any alien movie is too much. yes i know E.T was friendly..still freaky. sorry.

I believed that old movies from the 30s and 40s were filmed in black and white because color hadn't been invented yet. However, the movie The Wizard Of Oz confused me cause it was both in color and black and white. So I came to the conclusion that they had known that color was about to be invented so they filmed the black and white scenes first (which actually was filmed in sepia tone) and then filmed the color scenes after it was invented. What confirmed my beliefs further that color didn't exist back then was the the Wizard Of Oz book describes Kansas as having no color.

I used to believe that because dwarfs were featured in Snow White, they couldn't be real living people, just like fairies and goblins and whatnot.

I used to believe that the world used to be black and white and then changed to color, instead of black and white movies changing into color.

My neighbor used to think that people in L.A. acted everytime we played a video, and he couldn't understand how rewind and fast forward was possible.

As a small child, I used to believe that Elizabeth Taylor (the actress) and Queen Elizabeth (the queen) were the same person. I think I figured out the difference around 3rd-4th grade (1962), but I was really confused there for a while (both were in the news a lot back then).

Movies used to befuddle me.I couldn't figure out the amazing coincidence by which a phone would ring at precisely the right moment...or someone's lottery ticket "coincidently" just happened to be drawn.

My sister was convinced Laurel a Hardy were puppets because of the lines in the old black and white films. We were quite young, and I didn't have the ability to persuade her otherwise, despite knowing she had to be wrong. It was very frustrating.

When I was little i thought that the part at the begining of movies where it says this film has been modified to format your screen.. meant that they took parts out of the movie.

My parents told me that if you touched the cinema screen you woukld be electrocuted. This was clearly just a ploy to make me behave at the cinema, but I believed it for years, as no-one ever touched the cinema screen!

I used to believe that the actors would act out entire movies everytime I pressed play on the video, and stop when I pressed pause.

The guys in Star Wars would have got really fed up of saying the same lines over and over and over again!!
