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 and their
family from future embarrassment.
Problems arise, however,
when Veta herself is mistakenly assumed to be on the verge
of lunacy when she explains to doctors that years of living

The doctors commit Veta
instead of Elwood, but the truth comes out eventually.

on more than one of the doctors.
Only at the end does Veta
realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all...
