Storyline

The award winning bing play of Mary Chase came to television in 1958. It tells the story of Elwood P. Dowd (Art Carney), a personable chap who drinks a little, and befriends a "pookah", a six foot rabbit he calls "Harvey". Unfortunately, his sister and main caregiver Veta Louise Simmons formation Lorne, and her spinster daughter Myrtle Mae, have had Elwood's condition negatively affect their social lives. Elwood's engaging personality with its one flaw creates problems for those around him. So his sister, thinking it is in his best interests, seeks a cure for her brother's problem. But nothing is ever that simple. Written by John Wayne Peel

Mike Nichols & Elaine May in "The Red Mill" - Dupont Show of the Month 1958 .
17 May 1999 | by joe.starSee all my reviews

Watching and listening to Mike and Elaine together in the back -seat of a Rolls Royce limmo, singing Victor Herbert's "Why do I love You? Why do you Love me?" to each other, remains for their "humble" Casting Director/Associate Producer a vivid career-highlight memory all these forty one years later. Memory loses a lot in time, yet I find great, easy pleasure in recalling/ replaying their performance in this mind and heart.
