HARVEY

(1950, dir. Henry Koster, w/ James Stewart, Josephine Hull, Peggy Dow)

The classic stage hit gets the Hollywood treatment in the story of Elwood P. Dowd who makes friends with a spirit taking the form of a human-sized rabbit named Harvey that only he sees (and a few privileged others on occasion also.) After his sister tries to commit him to a mental institution, a comedy of errors ensues. Elwood and Harvey become the catalysts for a family mending its wounds and for romance blossoming in unexpected places. (IMDB)

The Lost Weekend will start at approximately 10:10pm, and finish at approximately 11:57pm.

Don Birnam, long-time alcoholic, has been "on the wagon" for ten days and seems to be over the worst; but his craving has just become more insidious.

But this bout looks like being his last...one way or the other. (IMDB)
