Florida Tech Psycho-Cinema Presents Harvey
– Florida Tech’s film discussion series, Psycho-Cinema: Psychology and the Movies, will present the 1950 classic, Harvey, on Thursday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m.
The screening and discussion will take place in the Skurla Aeronautics Bldg. auditorium, Room A110.
James Stewart stars as Elwood P. Dowd, the mild-mannered man who just happens to have an invisible friend, he says, resembling a six-foot rabbit. One of
the great comedy films of all time, Harvey the movie, was adapted from a Pulitzer-prize-winning play and also includes Josephine Hull, Peggy Dow, Cecil
Kellaway and Jesse White in the cast.
Florida Tech School of Psychology faculty members Dr. Thomas Peake and Dr. James Oelschlager, Gene Shepherd M.D. and doctoral student, James Ferro, will be
on hand to lead a discussion with the audience. The movie and refreshments are free.
Peake originated the film series, which evolved out of his long-standing love of the movies, the humanity they reveal and the lessons they teach. His book,
Cinema and Life Stages: Healing Lives and Training Therapies, was published last spring by Praeger/Greenwood Publishers in Westport, Conn., at (800)
The Skurla Building is located on the corner of University Blvd. and Country Club Rd. For more information, call (321) 674-8142.
