"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.

I owe my introduction to Harvey, and Jimmy Stewart, to my dad who's turning 50 this winter. He wasn't even alive when this movie came out, but it's one of his all time favorites. I'm buying it for him for Christmas and I was so pleased to see that it had come out on DVD. This is such a heartwarming and hilarious film. It's definately one of my favorites.
It tells the story of a man named Elwood P. Dowd who loves to drink, but it doesn't affect his friendly personality. Meanwhile, his sister and niece find him an embarrassing nuicance who is standing in the way of his niece, Myrtle May's, introduction into high-class society. However, Elwood seems oblivious to their behavior towards him and never has anything but a kind word for anyone. Everyone outside his family seems to adore him and his family would love him too if it wasn't for his best friend. A best friend that no one can see. Except Elwood. A 6-foot-tall white rabbit named Harvey. As Elwood goes throughout his day, inviting bums from bars back to their fancy home for dinner, buying people he doesn't even know countless drinks, and giving them his card before introducing them to Harvey, his sister finally decides that that's the last straw and she decides to get rid of him. So she goes to a mental institution to begin the process of having him admitted. And that's where all their problems really begin...
This is a wonderful movie that my entire family makes a ritual of watching at least a couple times a year. My little sister who recently turned 8 right up to my parents adore it and laugh and cry with the characters. I hope you'll love it too.

I have been aware of "Harvey" for several years now, but had never actually seen it until I purchased this DVD. Of course with Jimmy Stewart in the lead role, my expectations were understandably high to begin with. I'm pleased to inform that this film doesn't fail to deliver. ****The film is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name. The play, written by Mary Chase ( who also helped with the screenplay), was written as a gift to help cheer a friend who lost a son in WW2. It translates wonderfully to the medium of film, largely due to the fact that most of the actors who appeared in the Broadway version were re-cast in their roles. Historically, this was not usually done in Hollywood. The film itself is "staged" very much like a play, with many long-shots, and is very engaging. ** Most surprising to me was the comedy. I expected it to be cute and charming, and as humorous as any 53 yr-old film could be. However this film isn't just a cutesy fairytale. I was very surprised and delighed with some of the situations and subject matter...HILARIOUS...some of which might have been considered a little bawdy back in 1950. This material has aged wonderfully. ** The cast is marvelous as well. Although Stewart felt that he portrayed his character a little too cute and dreamy, I found this to be one of his finest performances. He fills the cute and "crazy" character of Elwood P. Dowd with depth, wit, and more than a touch of pathos. And such was always the genious of have the ability to create a character that, no matter what, the world would welcome as a friend. He was a remarkable talent and has left a unfillable void with his passing. **Also remarkable is the performance of Josephine Hull who won the Academy Award for her role.Read more ›

"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.
