James Stewart plays a charming fella who appears to have a bit of a drinking problem: he keeps insisting to everyone around him that his best friend is an invisible, six-foot rabbit named Harvey. His aunt (a delightful performance by Josephine Hull) wants to have him committed to an insane asylum, but his psychiatrist isn’t entirely sure that Stewart has lost his marbles. Maybe there is a magic in the air that has resulted in the unseeable Harvey? You watch this delightful comedy favourite and find out.
