Dipsomania Week! concludes at Trailers from Hell with director and TFH creator Joe Dante introducing Henry Koster's 1950 classic "Harvey," starring James Stewart as Elwood P. Dowd, a man convinced he's become companions with a six-foot rabbit. 

One of Stewart's most memorable performances anchors a comedy classic that's enriched by the seriousness of its basic premise. Funny, sad and captivating, it's that rare example of a well-loved movie that plumbs deeper depths than it's given credit for. It's been restaged often for television and there's always talk of a theatrical remake, but it's hard to see how director Koster's version of Mary Hadley Chase's play could be topped.
