Classic Movie Discussion Group
The public is invited to a free viewing and discussion of the movie “Harvey (1950 104 min.)” The viewing will be held at the Covenant Community Center, 322 W. Pecan in Sherman, on Wednesday November 8, 2017 at 6 pm with Jerry Lincecum leading the discussion.
HARVEY based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Mary Chase, is a classic tale of relentlessly pleasant Elwood P. Dowd (Jimmy Stewart) and his best friend Harvey, a white rabbit that only Elwood can see. His eccentric insistence on the real existence of his friend have driven his sister Veta (Josephine Hull, who won an Academy Award for this performance) and niece Myrtle Mae (Peggy Dow) to distraction. They fear that Myrtle Mae will never be accepted into polite society and find a husband with her crazy uncle in the background, and decide to have him committed to a sanitarium called Chumley Rest. They don’t bank on other characters having the same reaction to Elwood that the audience might; namely, that they are the ones needing psychiatric confinement and that Elwood is perfectly sane, if a bit unusual.
The free viewing will be held at the Covenant Community Center, 322 W. Pecan in Sherman, on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 6 pm, with Walter Brice & Jerry Lincecum as organizers.
