Make a Wish is a heartwarming musical film from 1937. The movie revolves around the life of a young and talented singer named 'Bobby' played by Bobby Breen. Bobby is an orphan and lives with his strict, money-minded aunt Martha (Marion Claire). He dreams of becoming a singer someday and touring the world, but his aunt forces him to focus on his studies and get a good job.

Bobby's life takes a turn when he meets a famous composer named 'Tony' played by Basil Rathbone. Tony is frustrated with his music and is looking for inspiration. Bobby offers to sing a few of Tony's songs for him, and Tony is immediately impressed with his talent. Bobby's angelic voice gives him the inspiration he needed to compose more beautiful music. Tony decides to take Bobby under his wing and teach him everything about music.

Bobby and Tony's friendship grows, and Bobby introduces Tony to his Aunt Martha. However, Martha does not approve of Tony's influence on Bobby and demands that he stays away from him. Tony, on the other hand, sees the talent in Bobby and works towards showcasing his talent to the world. They work together on a musical show that they hope to present to the public.

In the meantime, there is a subplot involving a young couple in love, Barbara and Donald. Barbara is Bobby's best friend, and they have a special relationship. However, Barbara's father does not approve of Donald as he is not wealthy enough for his daughter. This subplot runs parallel to Bobby's story and is a love story in itself.

As the musical show's date approaches, things take an unexpected turn, and Bobby finds himself alone on the stage. But with Tony's guidance and encouragement, Bobby faces his fears and gives an outstanding performance. He becomes hugely popular overnight, and his aunt realizes her mistake and apologizes to Bobby for not believing in him.

The movie's themes of friendship, love, and belief in oneself make it an enjoyable watch for viewers of all ages.
