When Elwood P. Dowd starts to introduce his imaginary friend,
Harvey, a six-and-a-half-foot rabbit, to guests at a society
party, his sister, Veta, has seen as much of his eccentric
behavior as she can tolerate. She decides to have him committed
to a sanitarium to spare her daughter, Myrtle Mae, and their
family from future embarrassment. Problems arise. Only at the
end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn't so bad after all.
