John Fante Novelist & Screenwriter Raised in Boulder
Full of Life
Directed by Richard Quine, featuring Judy Holliday, Richard Conte, Salatore Baccaloni, Ester Minciotti (1956). This film is a screen adaptation by John Fante of his 1952 book. It is a charming domestic comedy/drama about the family of a writer—his pregnant wife and his father, an Italian stone mason who wants to help prepare him to be a parent. An amusing episode involves the father demolishing a faux fireplace in the house, then assisted by the pregnant wife in building an ostentatious real one. (91 min.)
