Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it.

Harvey (1950)
Chosen by Victoria Charvill who had this to say about it: 'One of James Stewarts' best films and an absolute classic that everybody should watch.'

James Stewart is fantastic in this funny but flawed classic.
It often betrays it's theatrical roots with some stodgy staging and performances that are too broad, lacking subtlety where a smarter, quieter take would bring out some of the great dialogue much better.
Still, a terrific movie, well worth a watch even if just for Stewart.
