In one scene Gunny watches King Kong (1933) and is terrified by a scene in which Kong munches on one of the natives. That scene was deleted from the original theatrical release and not restored until the 1970s (Three Wishes takes place in 1955). See more »
If you like the sentimental, you will love Three Wishes.
When my 5 year old and I entered the theater for this film, all I knew was that it was not R rated. To my great pleasure and surprise I found a gem of a movie I continually recommend to all my friends.
After my brother and I watched it a few years ago you could have called us the "blubber brothers" as we both were overcome by the its generous wish for us all.
