I used to believe that Al Pacino and Al Capone were the same people.
I misread the title of this B-movie, "The Creature from the Black Lagoon", when I was a kid, so I'd squeal, "The lagoon is coming to get me!" all the time.
My parents tried to explain it to me, but I guess I never got it.
When I was around eight or nine years old, I always used to hang out with my "favorite" cousin who was three years older than me.
One night, my cousin, his friend, and I were outside of his house playing around and talking when suddenly his friend called me a "fag". Being older than me and trying to act cool, they wouldn't tell me what it meant. A few minutes later, they told me that the "Candyman" (from the popular horror film) would get me. Being absolutely terrified, I ran in the house to my mom.
"Mom! The Candyman is going to get me! Does he only come after fags?" I was terrified.
Looking back at that now, mom probably laughed about that with her friends for hours after I went to bed - knowing that I was safe from the Candyman because I wasn't a fag.
When I was younger i thought that that the cloud rhino (from that old "James and the giant peach" movie) was real. I never would disobey my evil teachers all throughout kindergarden-3rd grade.
When I was a child I used to believe that Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang was the most amazing movie ever - when I went back and watched the film as a teenager and realized that the entire film had been a dream sequence, my heart broke a little.
I used to think that if you watched all the different previews for a new movie being advertised on tv, you would end up having seen the whole movie.
We watched the film Arsenic and Old Lace when I was a kid, and I thought the title was "Our Snickin' Old Lace." I was annoyed that no one was able to tell me what "Snickin'" meant, so I thought maybe it was something like snickering. So I imagined the lace laughing at people.
I used to believe that movies were made in the exact order shown on screen.
I used to think it would take years and years to make films that way.
I thought that one scene was filmed then everyone packed up and moved to another location or whatever to film the next scene.
It wasn't until I saw a 'behind the scenes' programme on telly showing that they filmed all their scenes at the one location and then moved on.
Then it clicked.
Sadly this wasn't till in my teens.
When I was three years old my siblings had a movie night where they showed the movie "Poltergeist." It wasn't until my teens that I wasn't afraid of the electronic "snow" on an unused television channel.
i used to think it took 65 million years to make the movie "Jurrasic Park". i got this idea because of the movies tagline on the posters for it. i couldnt understand why someone would take such along time to make a movie.
I used to believe that when actors and actresses kissed each other their lips weren't really touching. I thought there was some kind of camera trick that made it look as if their lips touched.
I seem to recall my mother telling me that before the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" there were two other Close Encounters movies before this one. I never recall seeing them on video or otherwise. On a related subject, I'm still awaiting sequels to "History of the World Part I"
I went to see a movie with my 2 older brothers once. I was maybe 5 or 6 years old. After we had seen the movie, it stopped showing at the theatre. So I just assumed that every movie that we saw from then on was only at that theatre long enough for us to see it and then it was gone. I realized that this was wrong a couple of months later after we had seen a movie and it was still at that theatre afterwards.
i used to think that actors were not allowed to actually kiss in films so when people did i thought they had to have kissing doubles, it always amazed me that the doubles looked so much like the actor.
I used to think that huge blockbusters that are being heavily advertised were the only movies in the theaters, and all the regular public went to see them. The weird looking flicks were movies that only freaks, or "hill folk" as I used to call them (got that from my older sister) went to see those movies.
Think I learned my lesson the second I saw "Cool Runnings" (the first film I hated, which ironically the rest of my family loved)...
I use to believe that if you rewind a tape or a movie you were making the actors do it over and over again.
It was my first time going out to a see movie . (Back when Disney's Pinnochio was "in") For some reason, I thought there were ghosts inside the theatre
When I was about 3, I watched this movie where a woman got bewitched and became very old. Then she turned back to normal, her face got younger and younger looking, and I thought they had used different aged women to go in and out of the room to shoot that scene. I was so proud to have figured it all out!
i used to believe you needed huge tapes for movie theaters
I once believed that E.T. was real and that he stood outside my bedroom door at night!
