An unlikely hero, Elwood P. Dowd. This mild-mannered-but-eccentric bachelor has, for several years, happily kept company with Harvey, a six-foot-tall rabbit that only he can see. All's well... See full summary »
The classic stage hit gets the Hollywood treatment in the story of Elwood P. Dowd who makes friends with a spirit taking the form of a human-sized rabbit named Harvey that only he sees (and a few privileged others on occasion also.) After his sister tries to commit him to a mental institution, a comedy of errors ensues. Elwood and Harvey become the catalysts for a family mending its wounds and for romance blossoming in unexpected places.Written by
The play's author Mary Chase and producer Brock Pemberton were to receive $100,000 per year for ten years against one-third of the film's profits, and the start of the film was contractually delayed until the end of the play's run. Pemberton died in March 1950, before the start of the production. See more »
After Wilson has a scuffle with patrons in Charlie's they return to the booth and there were four drinks on the table. Stewart's character had ordered and the bar keep had brought only three. See more »
Another great comedy from Hollywood's Golden Age has James Stewart (Oscar-nominated) going all around town with his imaginary friend Harvey, a six-foot rabbit. Sister Josephine Hull (Oscar-winning) tries to have Stewart committed, but it seems that everyone who tries to reason with Stewart go crazy themselves. Hilarious and intelligent in every way imaginable. A fine piece of entertainment. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
