For people of a certain vintage, anyway, the definitive version of this heart-warming story about a good-hearted man who is befriended by an Irish spirit called a pooka which, in his instance, resembles a six-foot tall rabbit, is the 1950 movie starring James Stewart.

The movie itself, though, is based on a 1944 Pulitzer Prize-winning play by American playwright Mary Chase.

Starting Wednesday, Regina Little Theatre will be presenting a production of Harvey at the Performing Arts Centre at 1077 Angus St. June 8-10, curtain for the play will be at 7:30 p.m., with two performances on Saturday June 11 at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. For more information visit the RLT website.

Here’s a bit of a trailer for the 1950 movie
