The wonderful event was hosted by Hal Spradling and Stacey Scher of All Canadian Self-Storage. I met other movie lovers and enjoyed a delicious meal of roast lamb, salmon, veggies, Processo, red wine and a choice of amazing pies: key lime, coconut cream and lemon meringue. My taste buds were singing!
It was a blissful evening where the meal, pleasant new meetings and a classic comedy made the icy weather outside completely disappear! The film we saw was one of my father's favourites and I finally saw it for the first time. The movie added to the warmed in my heart I was already feeling!
The comedy, Harvey, is based on a play of the same name and is about a middle-age, eccentric man, Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart), whose best friend is in the form of a six-foot, 3 1/2 inch tall invisible rabbit named Harvey. When his sister, Veta (Josephine Hull) tries to have Elwood committed to a sanatorium that’s when the film accelerates into a hilarious screwball comedy of errors. See: movie trailer
Elwood’s positive spirit and attitude, despite adversities he faced, inspired me. I highly recommend this film to inspire you to be more compassionate and thoughtful of others. That attitude will warm the spirit of everyone involved!
“Years ago my mother used to say to me, "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.”
Elwood P. Dowd, from the film Harvey
