>HARE RESTORER: HARVEY About a 42-year-old alcoholic who talks to an invisible giant rabbit, this 1950 film is still funny, thanks to a cynical-sentimental script and a cast led by James Stewart. Stewart provided a charming preface to this tape release, reminiscing (off-camera, alas) about such things as letters he got from people with invisible friends. And as Elwood P. Dowd, he shows why he is held in so much affection and esteem, mixing world-weariness and whimsy as he says, "I wrestled with reality for 35 years, and I'm happy to say I won out over it." (MCA)
