Harvey (1950) was a Comedy - Drama Film directed by Henry Koster and produced by John Beck.
Elwood is a good-natured, slightly sloshed man whose faithful companion is a 6-feet-3.5-inches-tall rabbit that only he can see. When his sister Veta (Hull) tries to have him committed, she's taken in instead. It's up to Elwood and Harvey to straighten out the mess. Stewart in his best amiable, bumbling mode.

Mrs. Ethel Chauvenet: Does Elwood see anybody these days?
Veta Louise Simmons: Oh, yes, Aunt Ethel, Elwood sees *somebody*.
Elwood P. Dowd: Harvey and I sit in the bars... have a drink or two... play the juke box. And soon the faces of all the other people they turn toward mine and they smile. And they're saying, "We don't know your name, mister, but you're a very nice fella." Harvey and I warm ourselves in all these golden moments. We've entered as strangers - soon we have friends. And they come over... and they sit with us... and they drink with us... and they talk to us. They tell about the big terrible things they've done and the big wonderful things they'll do. Their hopes, and their regrets, and their loves, and their hates. All very large, because nobody ever brings anything small into a bar. And then I introduce them to Harvey... and he's bigger and grander than anything they offer me. And when they leave, they leave impressed. The same people seldom come back; but that's envy, my dear. There's a little bit of envy in the best of us.
