James Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd, the man whose best friend is Harvey, an imaginable six-foot English-speaking invisible rabbit! Based upon Mary Chase's play of the same name, the film version is a charmer, as is Stewart. Innocence has never been so quaintly portrayed! Naturally, friends and relatives of Dowd are disturbed and make an attempt to see that he is "straightened out." Clever and sophisticated, this black and white film is well worth the time!
