April 22, 2010Sara Grants You Three Wishes!
By Sara In AZ
He He, I wish! Hmmmmm, what would I wish for – how about a cool 50s time capsule house (just like yours Ruth). Anyway, Three Wishes is one of my very favorite movies (besides It’s A Wonderful Life) because it is a total kitschfest! It stars Patrick Swayze and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and it came out in 1995, BUT the movie is set in 1955. I don’t know if anyone out there has seen this movie, but if you have not I totally recommend it. It has a really cute story line, with a happy ending – but Oh My, the eye candy. There are the MCM houses, the Heywood Wakefield, the bullet planters, the wallpaper, the clothes – I could go on and on.
Here is a plot summary from Wikipedia:
When Jane Holman (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) is driving with her two sons, Tom and Gunny, she accidentally runs into a drifter, named Jack McCloud (Patrick Swayze), who breaks his leg. Feeling sorry for him, Jane invites Jack and his dog Betty Jane to stay at her home until his leg has healed. After having some difficulties to adapt to this new lifestyle, Jack soon finds himself loved by the family and they all want him to stay. When he starts teaching baseball to Tom, who misses his father who’s missing in the Korean War, the two of them develop a strong bond. Meanwhile Gunny believes that there’s more to Jack and Betty Jane than meets the eye, and he’s determined to find out.
Here ia a link to the movie trailer from 1995: http://www.reelzchannel.com/trailer-clips/27489/three-wishes-trailer
Sorry I could not get it to upload directly to this site. But if you click on the link it is right there – just hit play!
Here is a pic from the movie ( I could not find that many), check out the waaaay atomic wallpaper in the background!
And I got this image from the trailer so you all could check out the AWESOME houses and cars in this movie. I know it is kinda hard to see the houses, so you will just have to go check out the movie for yourself. Trust me, you will love it!
So, has anyone else out there seen this movie before?
