Elwood P. Dowd is an affable man who claims to have an unseen friend Harvey — whom Elwood describes as a six-foot, one and one half inch tall white rabbit. Elwood introduces Harvey to everyone he meets. His social-climbing sister, Veta, finds his eccentric behavior embarrassing. She decides to have him committed to a sanitarium. When they arrive at the sanitarium, young Dr. Sanderson mistakenly commits Veta instead of Elwood, and when the truth comes out, the search is on for Elwood and his invisible companion.
