This is a delightful comedy about Elwood P. Dowd, a whimsical middle-aged man who claims to have an unseen (and presumably imaginary) friend Harvey, whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch tall rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets. His social-climbing sister, Veta, increasingly finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium to spare her and her daughter Myrtle Mae from future embarrassment. When they arrive at the sanitarium, a comedy of errors ensues!
