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, because Jane's parents are poor and Jane and Ralph can borrow a car for their honeymoon. But at dinner that night, all Ralph's parents talk about are the big weddings they gave their daughters, and everything escalates. Suddenly it's 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 that money is going towards a wedding that neither he nor Jane nor Ralph really want.Written by

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.

At about the 30 minute mark, Ralph (Rod Taylor) and Jane (Debbie Reynolds) are sitting next to each other in front of the window. In the next moment, Uncle Jack (Barry Fitzgerald) then appears in the room, but now Ralph (Rod Taylor) is sitting at the opposite end of the table away from Jane (Debbie Reynolds), and Uncle Jack takes the seat where Ralph had been.

Morning, Tom! How's the taxi business?
How's the bridge business?
One more day like this, I'll own the bridge!

I enjoyed this movie very much. It seems like it was originally done as a television drama and ended up being released theatrically. The cast, screenwriter and director are all top of the line and they all did very good work in this little seen movie. I believed in each character and the drama is not overdone at all.
