Harvey (Johnny Segalla) thinks himself a great bountyhunter ... but he's really not that good, he only has the knack for being at the right place at the right time, and apart from that, he enjoys the lifestyle - including the fact that he has a stretch limo plus driver (Jack Tracksler) at his disposal - much more than the actual work, and really is more travelling from one party to the next, picking up hookers along the way and getting horribly drunk than actually doing something productive. And the only reason his secretary Chenault (Kate Paulsen) - who's also the actual brains of the operation as well as Harvey's conscience - hasn't left him long ago is because she's secretly in love with him.

Then though Harvey receives an appointment from a certain John Smith (Richard Wayne) to retrieve a painting that belongs to him, a painting that has hidden inside the account numbers of several of the top assassins of town, in exchange for three account numbers on that list - which are priceless to a bountyhunter of course. Now Harvey happily accepts, not putting two and two together and figuring somebody that has all these account numbers might be very involved with organized crime - nor that there might be others who might want the list as well ... like lovely Violet (Kristen Sargent Gorman), a self-confessed bankrobber who first tries her seductive charms then lethal weapons on Harvey.

Things really get out of hand when Harvey finds out he has somehow obtained the painting in question last night out drinking, without even remembering where and why anymore. But that suddenly makes him the center of attention - and most of those whose attention he has attracted are heavily armed ...

 

Harvey the Great is a pretty little thriller comedy that manages to at the same time follow genre conventions and turn them on their heads, first of all thanks to the film's highly unusual and very colourful (and well-played) characters, but also thanks to a direction and pacing that keeps the movie's action going steadily while weaving many a quirk into the on-screen goings-on. And a light-footed approach to the darkly comedic plot of course helps as well.

Great genre entertainment, really.
