At breakfast, Jane announces that she and Ralph are getting married the next week. All Jane and Ralph want is a small wedding with the immediate family and no reception. This is because Janes parents are poor and Jane and Ralph can borrow a car for their honeymoon. However, at dinner that night all Ralph's parents talk about are the big weddings they gave their daughters and everything escalates. All of a sudden, it is a big wedding breakfast with hundreds of guests. The problem is that for 12 years, Tom has been saving money to buy his own cab and license, but now that he can, all of his money is going towards a wedding neither he, or Jane or Ralph really want.

The church where the wedding is held is the Church of St. Augustine, which was located in the Bronx on Franklin Ave. between East 167th and 168th St. The church was built in 1894. By 2009, St. Augustine's had fallen into such a state of disrepair that the building could no longer be used. With membership in the parish having dwindled to around 300, St. Augustine's was closed in 2011. The parish church, rectory and convent were demolished in 2013 to make way for subsidized housing.

I have loved this film for years and it gets so rarely shown. No need to explain what it is about as others have done it so much better than I could. The performances are all superb (especially the supporting players) and it stands today as much as a social document as it does a piece of film. I used to love DAVIS years back and then went off her somewhat as I kept thinking she was all too exaggerated, too theatrical, too mannered. In this film I would disagree with someone who said it is LA DAVIS as usual. I would say it is not. She is miles away from MARGO CHANNING and CHARLOTTE VALE in this. I don't know the background of the characters for "real" but she sounds "real", no effort in glamorizing the character either The one bit that gets to me every time last about 10 seconds and is right at the end. It is the look of a new proprietor (wont tell why so as not to spoil it) on a face of a woman who never had anything, and whose dreams have all but disappeared. She looks around and the pride and gladness felt by her character AGGIE is all in there.No words. Just a glance, a look. As I write this I get goose pimples just thinking about it. This should be shown to kids today as part of "living history", a history not so far gone. If you like your movies with action and pretty blondes by pass this. If you like to know about people and the human condition don't miss it..It is all in there.Beautifully and heartfeltingly done.
