Can't think of too many misconceptions I had, but one from Raiders does come to mind. I didn't understand the bit about the dates being poisoned when I was little, and when they show the monkey lying on the floor, with the camera above the ceiling fan, I thought the monkey had died after falling from the fan. LOL!!!

I think Harrison Ford just mispronounced the name as "Sapito" and the way he says it makes it sound like "Stupido." Kinda like how he mispronounces "Ord Mantell" as "Ord Mandell" in The Empire Strikes Back.

LOL...that's my favorite one so far.

After Indy is rescued by Sallah's kids, I used to think Sallah told him, "Life goes on, Indy. There is the crook." I thought Sallah was referring to the Monkey Man, since the film then cuts to him.

"Life goes on, Indy. There is the crook."
"Where?"
"The one-eyed gentleman on the motorcycle."
"That's stereotyping, Sallah, shame on you. Just because he's got an eyepatch and he's riding a motorcycle doesn't make him a hired killer."

Ha...Sallah resorting to racial profiling.

I just always wondered why Indy didn't go get the "crook". So it basically came across as:

"There is the crook...but there's nothing we can do about it now. Let's go see this guy I know."

You know I thought that too! Also for some reason I thought the Indy films were set in the present day. I was quite shocked when I realised they were all set in the thirties!

As with most kids, I didnt realize Doom happened before Raiders, because honestly, there's no reason to think it did. Really the only order you HAVE to watch them in is make sure you watch KOTCS last, haha.

I always wondered why Indy never fought the "zombies" in the tomb that were attacking Marion I was a foolish child.

I questioned why Indy's hat disappeared at the end of Raiders and was a bit bummed out by it.

I never caught the petroleum line in LC, so as a young child, I thought for a brief time that water was flamable.

Before such concepts occured to me (aka, when I was like 4), I thought the scene in LC with Elsa and Indy making out in his room was them fighting, because she bites him.

On a related note, when I was little I never understood what Indy was saying when he says "I should sink a well down here and retire." I thought he was saying "I should think I'm well down here and retire." I remember thinking, "Why would he want to retire to a bunch of dark tunnels?" LMAO!!!

Haha!! If that's fighting, I need to pick more fights!

I spent quite a while thinking that the caption stating '1938' in LC actually meant 1983 when I was born. I was a pretty dumb kid and found that really exciting

When I was a kid I always heard in Raiders, "Sometimes I wonder monsieur if you have that Canadian mind." It made me wonder if Belloq was from Quebec or something.

Haha, his daughter (well Ronald Lacey's) used to be on a sitcom here in Britain, and she had a bit of a piggy nose like his.

One misconception a lot of people have, or confusion - is - does Elsa give Donovan the wrong grail on purpose? I am swaying to yes, she does.

Yeah and this is put across by the fact that when Donovan keels over the water bowl you see Elsa's face which is cold and uncaring. She chose the wrong grail intentionally.

Yeah, I imagined so, I also expect he knew she had on purpose too, hence why he has his hands grasped around her neck near the very end of his life!

Not to mention that after Donovan dies, Elsa specifically says "It would not be made out of gold" so she knew the entire time that the one she gave Donovan wasnt the Grail.

I think everyone in the room, except for Donovan, knew that was the wrong grail.

I used to think that the movies were actually made in the thirties, since that was when they took place.

My little brother always thought that Indy said "poor soul", when Forrestal's corpse appears in Raiders.

"This is it, this is where poor-soul cashed in."

"Friend of yours?"
