Description:Elwood P. Dowd (Jimmy Stewart) has a friend named Harvey who happens to be a six-foot invisible rabbit. Elwood's sister Veta is trying to get her daughter Myrtle married, but Elwood's eccentricity scares all the suitors away. Veta decides to have Elwood committed to an asylum, but her rantings convince the doctors that she's the crazy one and have her committed instead. The head doctor, Dr. Chumley, goes to look for Elwood and ends up believing in Harvey. Before things get settled, another doctor and a nurse are matched and Myrtle is seeing one of the attendants. There is a formula that can cure Elwood, but Veta decides she loves her brother just as he is.

Reviews for Harvey

Review - Harvey

Jimmy Stewart is excellent as the nice drunk who calms everybody with his pleasant manner. Most of the rest of the characters are just annoying and the whole thing is rather silly. The whole plot is revealed in the first 10 minutes and just drags on the rest of the way.
