Overview

Elwood is a good-natured, slightly sloshed man whose faithful companion is a 6-foot 3-1/2 inch rabbit that only he can see. When his sister Veta (Josephine Hull) tries to have him committed, she's taken in instead. It's up to Elwood and Harvey to straighten out the mess.

    Region [unknown]
    Josephine Hull, Victoria Horne, and Jesse White all originated their roles in the stage version of Mary Chase's Pulitzer prize-winning play HARVEY. White made his film debut with this screen adaptation. James Stewart occasionally filled in as Elwood P. Dowd in the Broadway adaptation.

    Some MCA/Universal video releases of HARVEY feature a special introduction by Stewart.
    "Myrtle Mae, you have a lot to learn, and I hope you never learn it."--Veta Louise Simmons (Josephine Hull)

    "I've wrestled with reality for thirty-five years, and I'm happy, Doctor, I finally won out over it."--Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart)

    "Harvey and I have things to do...we sit in the bars...have a drink or two...and play the jukebox. Very soon the faces of the other people turn towards me and smile. They say: 'We don't know your name, mister, but you're all right, all right.' Harvey and I warm ourselves in these golden moments. We came as strangers--soon we have friends. They come over. They sit with us. They drink with us. They talk to us. They tell us about the great big terrible things they've done and the great big wonderful things they're going to do. Their hopes, their regrets. Their loves, their hates. All very large, because nobody ever brings anything small into a bar. Then I introduce them to Harvey, and he's bigger and grander than anything they can offer me. When they leave, they leave impressed. The same people seldom come back."--Elwood P. Dowd

    "I'd just helped Ed Hickey into a taxi. Ed had been mixing his drinks, and I felt he needed conveying. I started to walk down the street when I heard a voice saying: 'Good evening, Mr. Dowd.' I turned, and there was this big white rabbit leaning against a lamppost. Well, I thought nothing of that! Because when you've lived in a town as long as I've lived in this one, you get used to the fact that everybody knows your name."--Elwood P. Dowd on meeting Harvey for the first time

Editorial Reviews

Total Film 10-01-2000 "...[Stewart gives] a gentle, philosophical performance in a gentle, philosophical film..."
Sight and Sound 02-01-2006 "In 1950, Stewart was clearly looking to broaden his range....[He's] at home here in laid-back farce..."
