Extra movie night for me and Thomas. “Harvey”
An Easter weekend tradition. Jimmy Stewart playing a tipper with a pooka friend in the form of a 6 foot white rabbit …. Perfect! 😂

Team TLC extra movie night. “Harvey” – A yearly tradition around Easter for the past 5 or 6 years. A little late this year as I forgot to reserve it at the library.
Why a tradition at Easter? Well. One of the main characters is a 6 foot pooka in the form of a rabbit! Ha!
I say, “I adore this movie. Josephine Hull and James Stewart are phenomenal!! My favorite quote from the movie is by Elwood P. Dowd (played by Stewart) … “I always have a wonderful time wherever I am and with whom ever I’m with. My mom used to say to me, ‘In this World you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.’ For years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.”
Another favorite quote by Veta (played by Hull) … “I don’t want my brother to be normal. I don’t like those people.” You’ll have to watch it to get this one.
Thomas says, “It was good, as usual. I like the music. Especially the music for the scenes with Harvey.”
Lillian didn’t want to watch this year so we watched it while she’s at The Romano Duo’s place.

Team TLC Extra Movie Night – Easter weekend 4 or 5 years ago Thomas and Lillian wanted to watch something with rabbits.
On such short notice this is what I came up with and we’ve watched it every year since! A 6 foot pooka in the form of a rabbit counts right??? Plus, Josephine Hull and James Stewart are phenomenal in this.
