Harvey - the Invisible Rabbit...Or is he?


Hi Everyone! Right before Easter I thought I would tell you about a lil movie about a man and a bunny. James Stewart, the actor, is the star of the movie and this film is a lil different than the usual popular films. In this one, James Stewart plays a man who happens to have a friend named, Harvey. However Harvey is only seen by this one man. The hysteria commences, and there is some really witty dialogue, and yes people think James is utterly insane. BUT then a few interesting lil things happen, including a portrait of James & his friend Harvey is made and you are staring at a very large, white rabbit. Is Harvey real, is he not, or is James crazy? It's an adorable comedy that was made in 1950 that really should make it onto TV and TCM more. It actually has an 8.1 rating on IMDB, surprisingly.

"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."  - via Imdb.

I highly recommend this cute lil movie! It makes you laugh, smile, and appreciate the lil joys of life! I give it a 10! =)

I truly hope you all have a great holiday weekend, be it Easter or Passover or any holiday, Enjoy!!

  1. This sounds such a funny little old film. Always prefer my older b&w films - the acting always seems to much better!

  2. This sounds like such a cute little movie. I do like the old ones. They are so different from the movies nowadays. Have a wonderful Easter :)
