Well, thank you Harvey. The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day prefers you too.
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I juggled a few possible Easter BTS pics, but ultimately decided I had to go with Harvey, the great James Stewart film about a man and his (maybe) imaginary invisible six foot tall bunny rabbit.
It’s just kind of perfect for today, I think, even if the shot I have is more of a studio publicity shot than a true Behind the Scenes photo… and thank God for that. If we’d ever seen Harvey and he looked like what’s in this photo it would have ruined the movie.
But thankfully the movie is as it is and we get to have this great, kind of creepy, image to celebrate Easter with!
Click to embiggen! Enjoy!
Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic good! Fire bad!

Nothing beats Stewart! Just watched him in "How the West Was Won" , but it was sad that even though it was widescreen, it was pan and scan widescreen. I loved seeing the dividing lines between the three strips, just wish it'd been letterboxed to see the full scope of the thing. What a movie. Peppard's Stewart impression was hilarious too. Wish we still had Jimmy around.

That costume would be perfect if they ever do an Easter themed slasher movie.

My favorite Easter-themed movie. Doubt there's many -- if any -- production stills from that one, though.

Stewart is a legit icon, and one of the greatest, if not the greatest, figures of cinema.

As a Disney Sunday TV movie with the judge from Night Court as Dowd. I watched a bit of it, but it was all pretty much a line-for-line remake (I presume that's because the original was a close adaptation of the play). Unfortunately, all it did was remind me of how much better Stewart was at the part - no offense to Judge Harry. Stewart just nailed the role.

....only have carey be addicted to smack, and have "harvey" be a 600lb gorilla. get the original members of guns and roses together to do the sound-track and you got yourself a hit movie the whole family can enjoy.

Isn't "North" with Bruce Willis a kind of remake???

I'm starting to worry an obviously openly fictional character construct created by myself in facebook, obvious i mean according to use of words/ writing style, whome only a moron could be led from the beginning to believe otherwise and/or that they are supposed to be a real person, as opposed to based on a given one through Ned the talking horse inverted as a total douche or cunt-with-teeth of the week annoying me... is going to get me locked up/psycho-tagged if people get the wrong impression... here's hoping (not).... here's to checking out Harvey for the very first time rather soon! This post is not all that trollish if you think about it, given the number of AICN folk here who are believed to use more than one handle at once!... i swear to God I only do that shit in facebook openly for the reasons stated above!

Okay, not really.

I could have sworn Hanks really WAS going to do a remake of "Harvey." And I wouldn't make that up, because I'm aware of the original only because I remember reading about Hanks' planned remake years ago.

The publicity photos are kinda creepy, but Harvey is one of the all time great movies. First, it's just damn funny. Second, Jimmy Stewart is so damn good, and just pitch perfect in this. My favorite Stewart pic is "Winchester '73", but this is a very close second (along with "Rear Window", Liberty Valance", Philadelphia Story", and a gazillion others). It speaks to his immense versatility as an actor that I could hold the obsessive gunslinger (or rifle deadshot) from "Winchester" in the same regard as the gentle oddball from Harvey. Jimmy Stewart is simply that amazingly good an actor. Yet Harvey touches the part of us all that wants to be good, and do the right thing, and just simply be nice to people. Something that just doesn't exist in our culture today. Quint himself, despite his utmost noble intentions, is incapable of complimenting a movie without shredding another work for the sake of comparison (and I'n not referring to this article in particular, but one only needs read one of his inane reviews). Quint is a lazy critic and always has been, as is most - if not all - of the AICN crew. They tend to sicken me. If only because they feed the machine that is destroying movies while lauding the films that made going to the movies a great experience in the first place. Hypocrites, one and all. Harry is the worst, by far, but I can't hold them all to task too much because they truly are fans. They love movies and their history, of that I have no doubt. However, they are in the business and they must toe the line. This all reminds me of Army Archard, the Variety crone that fucked Donner out of Superman II. People want to blame the Salkinds - some want to blame Donner, but the guy that deserves the credit for fucking us out of a Donner Superman II is Army Archard. Rest In Peace, Crone. I love my anonymity on this site, so perhaps I'm a hypocrite as well. Nonetheless, my point is that the AICN troupe is really no different than Army Archard. I recall recently having "Observe and Report" and "The Green Hornet" shoved down my throat on this site, and both movies sucked my bung. However, Seth Rogen is an AICN cumbath money shot, and that guy sucks. Seth Rogen sucks. Sucks Ass. Sucks my bung. The only credit I can give the guy is for actually getting the shit made. Kudos, because that ain't easy. It just helps that every AICN "reporter/critic" wants to suck Rogen's wang dry. They ain't helping the situation is what I'm really trying to say. So go ahead and keep posting BTS pics of great, great movies while promoting big old piles of dung, Quint. All of you guys are a part of the problem, and a long, long ways away from being part of the solution. The only reason - and I mean THE ONLY REASON I still give a shit about movies is because Pixar is doing John Carter. That's it. That is the only reason. Actually, it is only because of Pixar's existence. God bless Pixar. And fuck the machine.

Oh, yeah. I forgot about my primary point about the Army Archard thing. AICN had more to do with getting Sam Raimi screwed out of Spidey 4 than you will ever want to know. Seriously. And while many of you are inexplicably anti-Raimi (on Spidey) there's a shitload of you out there that know that he was THE Spidey director. Rightfully so. It was like getting rid of Spielberg, what Sony did on Spidey 4. Any news of Webb's Spider-Man has disappeared from the news and this site in particular. If AICN had the immense hard-on for this movie that they once did, it would surely still be in their news. It isn't. It looks (and reads) like total shit, but AICN just couldn't stop jacking off for it. Things got limp real quick, though, didn't they?

The only insane racist is you. The story you told about Stewart is a big lie. Do a web search of "Jimmy Stewart racist" and you will find the true version of the story. Take your race card and shove it up your rectum.

goin' around about that dame Jean Harlow, and I don't normally take kindly to speaking inappropriately of the dead, but you see this finger here? Yeah, look, look, look at it real good and real long. Uh huh. And if , if you have 5 bucks I'll give you a little sniff. I.. I haven't washed it since 1936. ok...I'm going to hell.

at his home in Beverly Hills on Roxbury Drive (right next door to Lucy). He was very kind and posed for a picture of me and him with Harvey in the middle - we both raised our hands like he was between us. He was a very gentle person when I met him, and very gracious to his fans.
