Product Description

Amazon.ca

It's always a small surprise to revisit this movie and realize what a subtly dark performance James Stewart gives as an alcoholic who claims he keeps company with a six-foot-tall, invisible rabbit. As Elwood P. Dowd, the actor emits a faint whiff of decay and spirits, yet Stewart also embraces Dowd's romanticism and grace with splendid ease. Based on a hit play and directed by Henry Koster, the film is terribly funny at times, especially whenever Elwood decides it's only polite to introduce Harvey to complete strangers. The supporting cast can't be beat. --Tom Keogh

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it." That cheerful comment sets the tone for "Harvey," a movie about a lovable guy whose way of dealing with the harshness of reality is simple: Make his own.

Veta Louise Simmons (Josephine Hull) hopes to arrange a wonderful marriage for daughter Myrtle May (Victoria Horne) in the upper echelons of society. There's one problem: her wealthy brother Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart) has an imaginary pal, a six-foot-three rabbit called Harvey. After Elwood accidently wrecks a party by introducing Harvey to everyone, Veta decides to have him committed.

Unfortunately, when Veta takes Elwood to the sanatorium, the staff come to think that the fluttery socialite is crazy, and is trying to get her sunny brother out of the way. So they lock her up, and let him go. After that mistake is straightened out, the psychiatric staff and Elwood's long-suffering family try to find him.... and Harvey.

If we ever saw Elwood P. Dowd ("Here, let me give you one of my cards") in a car, the bumper sticker would probably say, "Reality is highly overrated." The big theme of the movie is that reality can be harsh, and that it's not necessarily a bad thing to lapse out of it into the fantasies of our own minds. If Elwood isn't dangerous and is otherwise normal, who cares if he has an imaginary friend?

Is Harvey real? The film leaves that up to our imaginations. And in the end, it doesn't matter if Harvey is a figment of Elwood's imagination, or a friendly spirit. It's the effect he has on Elwood that is important.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful movie Feb. 8 2014

I love this movie. There is nothing really spectacular about James Stewart in this movie but it is the way all the support actors move about in this movie to carry out the story from start to finish that keeps you very interest in this movie and wanting to see it over and over again. This was certainly a must have for my movie collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic comedy worth finding Jan. 3 2014
Format:Blu-ray
"Harvey" turns up in the most unexpected places. IMDB lists more than five dozen references, mentions, and spoofs of the story. Somehow, the characters of Harvey and Elwood P. Dowd have become cultural icons. What a joy to be able to go back to the source.
"Harvey" is a gentle comedy of confused identities. The people around him are sure Elwood Dowd's six-foot tall rabbit friend is simply a delusion. But their efforts to have him institutionalized only result in making them look like the delusional ones. This makes "Harvey" a gentle prod to think about just what it means to be in touch with reality. What does it mean to be sane anyway?
Jimmy Stewart hits just the right notes in his performance. He is gentle and grounded, firmly assured of Harvey's reality, but not defensive when that assurance is challenged. In many subtle ways -- worth repeated viewings to appreciate the performance -- he manages to sell the reality of the title character. He towers over the supporting cast, who are almost all excellent in their own rights. Josephine Hull won her Supporting Actress Oscar for this performance. Director Henry Koster keeps things moving at a leisurely, thoughtful pace. Unfortunately, it may be too leisurely for a generation trained by contemporary fast-paced screwball comedies. But a patient viewing of this classic is time well spent. It's a gentle affirmation of hope and possibilities with a strong sense that life is good and tomorrow is worth living for.
My quibble with this edition is the lack of film-related special features. The "100 Years of Universal" features on Carl Laemmle and Lew Wasserman are interesting, but aren't really related to "Harvey." James Stewart's introduction is a nice addition.

"Harvey" a play written by Mary Chase began its long run on Broadway in 1944 and won the Pultizer Prize for best original American play in the same year. Harvey ran for another 4 years for a total of 1775 appearances. In 1950 Universal Studios acquired the film rights for a whopping $750,000 and signed Jimmy Stewart as the fun loving inebriate Elwood P. Dowd wealthy aire to the Dowd estate.
Summary; Harvey is a whimsical story about a fun loving inebriate millionaire Elwood P. Dowd (Stewart - he is perfectly cast - in an Oscar Nomination Role for Best Actor) & his very large white invisible rabbit (6 foot 8 inches), Harvey. Through his eccentric behavior with his friend Harvey, aggravates & is a constant embarressment to his family, especially his sister Vera Louise (Josephine Hull - she came from the original Broadway cast - in an Oscar Winning performance - Best Supporting Actress). Vera tries everyway to have Elwood addmitted to a mental hospital. A wonderous journey & many funny turn of events occur. And how everyones lives are effected by this unusual pair.
The DVD is a Black & White Full Screen (before WideScreen) presentation. The video transfer is outstanding. The extras/bonus materials include a 1990 Jimmy Stewart "Special introduction with photographic montage", production notes, mini bios & trailer. A great family film. Enjoy.
