'Harvey,' 1950

Jimmy Stewart earned a lead actor Oscar nomination for this comedy based on Mary Chase's Broadway play as Elwood P. Dowd, a sweet, slightly tipsy middle-aged man whose best friend is Harvey, a 6-foot-31/2 -inch white rabbit who nobody else can see. Elwood describes his best bunny bud as a pooka — a mischievous creature from Celtic mythology that is fond of social misfits like himself.
