Harvey is a lovely movie about enjoying life for what it is. Starring the great Jimmy Stewart, this timeless tale follows a day in the life of Elwood P. Dowd, who is being set-up for a prolonged stay in an insane asylum by his loving sister, Veta. Everyone around Elwood thinks he is probably just the craziest person ever. Why? Because of his 6 foot invisible friend, Harvey. Crazy? There is evidence that he exists!
The soul of this movie is contained within this famous line, "Years ago, my mother used to say to me, she'd say 'In this world, Elwood, you can be oh so so smart, or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart... I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." This line reveals exactly what is going on in this movie.
So, if you find yourself with a couple of hours to burn and you have already seen It's a Wonderful Life, watch this classic film and lose yourself to the idea of Harvey.
