Presumably you mean this was placed on the first line.
To make your script a little more portable, the shebang line should be:
This will execute the "python" command from wherever it resides,
presuming it is in the user's execution PATH environment variable.

Please show the exact command you're typing, and the exact error
To make a script that can be imported as a module *and* executed as a
script, put the "do this stuff when run as a script" at the end in the
following conditional block:
if ( __name__ == '__main__' ):
# do the main purpose of this script
