He is pushing small items that have some practical uses, and is becoming quite successful. One day, he makes his way to the museum to see his nighttime friends, only to learn that the place is going high tech with electronic interactive exhibits, and that some of the older pieces are being sent to Washington D.C.

A-Simple-Wish-1997-Bluray-Front-CoverA simple tale of a child wish this is not. This film is a story of Anabel and her love for her father, Oliver. She wants nothing for herself other than that her father gets the role that he has always wanted so that they can stay in New York City. Her father would like nothing better than to do that both for himself and his kids. So, in between auditions for operatic roles he spends his time as a carriage driver in Central Park. The only thing, at least in this film, getting in his way is a inept and bumbling fairy godmother, named Murry?
