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
When Veta complains to the judge about her treatment at the asylum she says that they asked her questions about sex, and she says it seems that all they ever do at the asylum is think about sex. Earlier, when Elwood spoke with the elderly security guard you could see the interior of the security hut, which apparently serves as the watchman's residence. Inside you could see a bed with some magazines on the floor underneath and the wall by the bed, which is covered with sexy pinup photos. See more »
When Gaffney is saying that he will be taking the cab home near the end of the film, his mouth movements don't match his words. See more »
When I first saw this movie I didn't think I would like it. I didn't think it was my "type" of movie. I was wrong. HARVEY will make you laugh and at the same time show you the power of kindness. JAMES STEWART makes you believe someone is there even know his friend is an invisible 6-foot tall rabbit. It is easily one of the best movies ever made! If you don't know what this movie is or haven't seen it for any reason all I have to say is "GO SEE IT!" Even if you don't like black and white movies, there is something in this movie for everyone. If you like drama, comedy, or just films that make you feel good inside this movie is for you.
"If ELWOOD P. DOWD is crazy I don't want to be sane."
