  • Elwood's philosophy is rather interesting, as well as the whole concept of a pooka, a spirit that loves playing with people and pull off harmless pranks (which is what Elwood says Harvey is)

      “Harvey” is a charming story of Elwood P. Dowd (Jimmy Stewart), a 42 year old bachelor, a kind, pleasant man and a perfect gentleman who has a rather unusual best friend - a six feet tall white rabbit Harvey visible only to

      him (initially).

      Elwood’s numerous friends are fine with it, but his family isn’t.

      He lives with his elder sister Veta and her daughter Myrtle Mae, who is risking to remain a spinster because of her uncle’s oddity.

      Veta, desperate to marry her daughter off, decides that Elwood must be removed and locked up at a mental institution.

      However, when he is taken there, his charm and wit wins over one doctor after another, and it is Veta, not him, who ends up getting hydrotherapy.

      There is much more to the movie than this, and the seemingly childish plot has more depth that it may at first appear.

      Elwood’s philosophy is rather interesting, as well as the whole concept of a “pooka,” a spirit that loves playing

      with people and pull off harmless pranks (which is what Elwood says Harvey is).

      The characters are well-developed and meaningful.

      The storyline keeps you guessing what’s going on.

      Is Elwood imagining it? Is this some form of a mental illness? Or does Harvey really exist?
