Harvey review

"Everyday's a beautiful day." The story revolves around an eclectic Elwood P. Dowd (Stewart), concerned Veta Louise Simmons (Hull), Dr. Lyman Sanderson (Charles Drake) and Myrtle Mae Simmons (Victoria Horne). The screenplay was relly good with insightful lines: Veta - "Well, I'm sorry - life is not easy for any of us." and Elwood - "I always have a wonderful time, wherever I, am, whomever I'm with." "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh, so smart or oh, so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant." "Ah well, some people are blind." "...one can't have too many friends."

Benign Kook

Are there any movie characters like Elwood P. Dowd anymore? Of course, there are not. Times have changed, and stories about benign kooks tend to have a darker or more surreal bent. This movie's setting is good-ol' small-town America, and its characters, including Harvey's pal Elwood, are all just simple folks trying their best to fit in and do the right thing. Only James Stewart could've pulled this off, and only in the early fifties. It would be pointless and impossible to do a remake.

The movie also includes a nice low-comedy moment, when a wanna-be society dame entertains a bruch bunch with a "hop, hop, hippity-hop" number, ample bosom a-bouncing. In a stellar cast, Josephine Hull is a treat as Elwood's long-suffering but adoring sister.
