BLAST FROM THE PAST: HARVEY

By Glen Starkey

Directed by Henry Koster (The Bishop’s Wife) and based on the play of the same name by Mary Chase, Harvey chronicles the misadventures of Elwood P. Dowd (Jimmy Stewart), who due to his close friendship with a 6-foot-3.5 invisible white rabbit perplexes those around him and vexes his older sister, Veta (Josephine Hull), and Veta’s daughter, Myrtle Mae (Victoria Horne), who believe they’ve become social outcasts because of Elwood’s eccentricities. Deeply charming thanks to Stewart’s masterful acting (you almost believe the invisible rabbit is there with him), this family film is a classic farce...
