Full of Life ★★½ 1956

Holliday stars in this domestic comedy about a nonreligious young woman who had married, in a civil ceremony, into a strict, Italian-Catholic family. Although Emily is now eight months pregnant the family still wants her and husband Nick (Conte) to have a church wedding. Holliday is a winning personality and the humor is lightly handled. Fante adapts from his own novel. 91m/B VHS . Judy Holliday, Richard Conte, Salvatore Baccaloni, Esther Minciotti; D: Richard Quine; W: John Fante.
