Facts about

Though James Stewart's character, Elwood P. Dowd, may certainly be referred to as an alcoholic, only at one time in the entire picture is he seen taking a drink.
The original Broadway production of "Harvey" by Mary Chase opened on November 1, 1944 at the 48th Street Theatre, ran for 1775 performances and won the Pulitzer Prize in Drama in 1945.
Prior to the release of Harvey, a press release reported that Francis the Talking Mule would have a cameo appearance in the movie. James Stewart, as Elwood P.Dowd, was to walk past Francis, and Francis was to "speak". Elwood would turn, in order to respond, but Francis would rebuke him, stating that he was talking to the big rabbit.
