This week we watched the 1950 movie Harvey which stars James Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd and Josephine Hull as his sister Veta Simmons. Elwood inherited the family fortune and his widowed sister Veta and her daughter Myrtle Mae live with him. They are not grateful for his generosity, however, because they consider that his eccentric ways are hurting their social standing and Myrtle's chances of making a successful marriage. Elwood experienced some sort of psychic break a few years before when his mother died. After that, he made the acquaintance of a six foot tall white rabbit named Harvey who has become his best friend. Though no one else can see Harvey, Elwood introduces him to everyone he meets, buys train and theater tickets for him, and talks to him constantly. Elwood and his invisible pal spend most of their days sitting in a local bar ordering martinis, chatting with the other patrons, listening to their problems, and inviting random people- taxi drivers, workmen, etc.- home for dinner. This naturally frustrates his social-climbing sister and niece who decide that Elwood must be committed to a local mental institution and take steps to make this happen. Hijinks ensue. As those around him charge about stressed, angry, and litigious, Elwood wanders happily though life in an amiable daze, genial and generous. It makes you wonder who the crazy ones really are. "Well, I've wrestled with reality for thirty five years, Doctor, and I’m happy to state I finally won out over it."
