Three Wishes for Jamie was adapted from a bestseller by Charles O'Neal. The film is set in Ireland at the turn of the century. Lovelorn Hibernian youth Stevan Rimkus is granted three wishes by a fairy queen; will he choose wisely, or....? Jack Warden does the "faith 'n' begorrah" bit as a twinkly old matchmaker. The storyline of Three Wishes for Jamie previously saw service as a Broadway musical in 1952. This made-for-TV version was first syndicated to local stations in early 1987.
