The Synopsis for Harvey (1950) 1080p

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.

The Reviews for Harvey (1950) 1080p

And how are you today, Mr Wilson?Reviewed bykennethwright45Vote: 10/10

Perhaps the sweetest, saddest and kindest of all talkie comedies. Its shameless sentimentality could have been cloying but for the way the gently kooky script squeezes the odd dash of lemon into the cocktail; similarly, its fine balance between naturalism and fantasy allows it to get away with things that would have been embarrassingly maudlin in a more literal-minded film. That's why I always seem to get something stuck in my eye when Elwood P Dowd goes into his "Harvey and I have things to do ..." speech.

Among a great ensemble cast, I'd like to drop down the credits a little to say a word for Harry Hines in the small but delightful role of Mr Miggles, the ageing jailbird whom Elwood invites to dinner. (He's been away for a while, "doing some work for the government ... making licence plates".) This was Hines's film debut at the age of 60, and it started him off on a busy and distinctive career in character parts as mildly disreputable but good-hearted old geezers, with hardly a change in costume or make-up from one film to the next. You can see him in the finale of Strangers on a Train as the old carny hand who crawls under the speeding carousel to stop the ride.

Here's a wicked little thought to close with: I'd love to see a TV channel or repertory cinema show Harvey as the top half of a drinking man's double bill ... with The Lost Weekend as supporting feature.

The importance of kindnessReviewed bygbill-74877Vote: 7/10

"In this world, you must be oh so smart, or oh so pleasant. Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant." So says Elwood P. Dowd (Jimmy Stewart), a character who combines the gentle temperament of the Dalai Lama with the martini intake of Frank Sinatra. He also seems a bit crazy, seeing as his pal is an invisible 6'3?" rabbit named Harvey, and happily introduces him to everyone he meets. While he seems harmless, his sister (Josephine Hull) wants to commit him to a sanitarium, and in a comedy of errors, gets locked up herself. From there it's a series of screwball moments, with the hospital staff trying to track down Elwood, and him oblivious to it all.

The film is a little bit of indictment of the mental health industry, with one doctor (Lyman Sanderson) jumping to harebrained conclusions and an orderly (Jesse White) aggressively putting his hands on people. He alludes to having had to take the corset off of Hull's character while stripping her, a fact that intrigues her daughter (Victoria Horne), in one creepy and awkward scene. Horne at 39 was far too old for the role (Jimmy Stewart, playing her uncle, was 42), and scenes with her and White are the low points of the film.

If it seems like just another goofball comedy in the first half, stay with it and let Elwood Dowd's benevolence sink in. He engages everyone he meets in real conversation, cares about them, and almost always invites them over to his house for dinner or for drinks. He does that not out of politeness, but actually wants and expects them to show up. The character is quite endearing, and Stewart's performance is nuanced and brilliant. In this screwball comedy, there is a real message of the importance of simple kindness, and it's delivered in a subtle way.

There's an awful lot of whimsical nonsense going on...Reviewed byDoylenfVote: 6/10

Being a practical person, I find comedies like HARVEY a bit of a stretch to swallow--however, I must admit that JAMES STEWART plays Elwood C. Dowd so perfectly that I almost expected to see Harvey myself by the time the film was over.

And whether you accept the simple platitudes offered here by screenwriter Mary Chase (as in her play), or not, the gentle fantasy is played for humor by a brilliant cast which makes the whole thin story easy to take. I suspect many will not succumb to the charming portrait of a mild-mannered alcoholic and his 6'3" rabbit friend that JAMES STEWART offers unless they can appreciate that this screwball comedy is really pleading for tolerance and understanding among all of us.

The performances make the film, in my opinion, and I can't express anything but admiration for the smooth ensemble work of Stewart, Josephine Hull (priceless in her Oscar-winning role as his scatter-brained sister), Peggy Dow, Charles Drake, Cecil Kellaway, Jesse White and Victoria Horne.

It passes the time pleasantly but you have to be in the mood for its quaint charm and whimsical situations.
