James Stewart in "Harvey"
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.
