my four year old niece loved watching "My Fair Lady", and thought the main lady singing was called "Her eyes are too little" [Eliza Doolittle]
As I saw "Back to the future 2" first time in 1991, when I was eight, I was convinced they had really moved in time to the year 2015 to make future scenes! I just couldn't believe someone could create vision of the future with so many details - there were lot of trade-marks, types of clothes, so many products (Pizza, Pepsi Perfect etc.) that it made me sure it was true AD 2015. I only wondered how the hell they had found the way to travel in time...
While watching Bambi with my mom for the first time, I became confused as to what happened to his mother. I asked my mom where she went and was told that she had gone shopping with her friends. I never thought it at all odd for a deer to go shopping, despite my better judgement, since of course my mother would never lie to me...
I not only believed this, but I also believed that at the end when Bambi's wife has two fawns, it was his mother having more children. She was the only doe I knew of in the movie, after all, and she was still living.
Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw in a theatre. I was 5. The experience freaked me out, although later I became a huge fan. I was amazed that the sets were so intricate and that they could change the them so quickly. I thought that it was a play happening behind the screen, and they put a screen in front of the action so the colors would look better. I was scared that one of the characters would accidentally shoot someone in the audience.
i used to think that "the king and i" was a musical based around the life of priscilla presley
I used to believe that Mike Meyers and Michael Myers where the same person
I used to believe that in Jurassic Park, when everyone was standing by the raptor fence for the first time, that Dr. Grant asked the "Australian Guy" (Muldoon) Can I show and tell it." instead of the line "Do they show intelligence?"
I used to think that they only used old actors in cowboy films so that it didn't matter much when they got shot.
When I was 8, I watched Superman I and fell in deep love with the Christopher Reeves version. I was convinced that he was watching me through my window at night because he lived on Mars (it was red and HE wore red) and was someday going to knock on our door (with flowers) and say, "Is Crystal Home?" in this really longing romantic voice. I wore my favorite pajamas every night in anticipation of his arrival.
My mum told me Mel Gibsons real name was Melanie (when i questioned it she said it could be a boys name too). Years later i had quite an irate arguement in my whole biology class trying to convince everyone thta this was true!
I thought Jedi fought with Life Savers... I never questioned it either!
When I was little, a movie came out called "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum". For the longest time I thought it was "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Farm".
I thought that psychological torture involved forcing people to watch really sad movies!
I thought Pinnochio was lucky to have such a cool friend;
"Jimmy the Cricket"
Now it sounds like a gangster name!
I used to believe that when I would watch "Pochahontas" that during the Colors of the Wind song, it would flood. So I always fast forwarded through that part. I think it might have been because it did flood at my house one time when I was watching it, but that's really the only explination I have...oh well.
when i was 4, i watched the Dr. Seuss movie "Daisy Head Maizy" the girl in the story had a daisy on her head, so when i was done watching it, i wanted a daisy on my head too! so i took my moms miracle grow plant fertalizer, and squeezed the whole bottle on the top of my head! it just turned my hair green... it took 4 days for it to come out...
When I was a kid, my parents took me with them to see a movie called "Breakfast At Tiffany's". When I heard them saying it's name, I thought they were saying "Breakfast Activities". It didn't turn out to be a very good movie for a kid to watch, and I didn't get much out of it. I thought it would probably have been better if it HAD been "Breakfast Activities"
I refused to watch the film "Independence Day" for years as I believed it was a film about Jesus so it would be really boring. No, I don't know why either.
When I was seven I went to Disney World, and we rode on this one ride in MGM Studios that was about a bunch of various movies (I think it was called the Great Movie Ride or something). And there were narrators, who doubled as actors I guess, but I had no clue about that part.
When we got to this one part, one of the narrators (who was also an actor, which I didn't know) was doing this Old West hold-up-type thing. And she ran into this building and the building CAUGHT FIRE!!!! So I thought she caught fire too NOOO! The flames were apparently real too...you could feel the heat as we went past them. And I was just like "WHY WOULD THEY JUST KILL HER LIKE THAT?!"
I stood corrected when she came back out at the end of the ride. YAY!
When I would watch The Wizard of Oz I was so involved in the story and characters that I took the background sets for granted. I knew there wasn't really an Oz I suppose, but I just never thought about the settings not being real in some way. From about the age of 12 until I was around 16, I had managed to miss the movie every time it was on tv. The night I caught it again my boyfriend was there, and I remember just staring at the screen during the poppy field scene and saying "it's not real!" He laughed and asked me, "what's not real?" and I said "the sets are painted and they aren't real!"
He thought I was crazy not having realized before that the movie was done in a studio, I was broken hearted. I think that night, the last of my "childhood" illusions were shattered!
