Victoria Brown has an uninvited houseguest living in the attic of her sprawling home. It's Mooney Pulaski, an escaped convict from the nearby penitentiary. The jewel thief means no harm, he just needs a place to hide, a hot meal and a shower. Harboring a fugitive is not the kind of thing a proper lady like Miss Brown does, but believing in his innocence, she allows him to stay in the attic. The days pass and the holiday draw near. The odd couple shares stories, laughs, secrets and dreams until a special bond of trust and friendship develops between them. But the police are moving in, the housekeepers are growing suspicious, and Mooney's time is running out. He has to make his move but before he does, Victoria Brown and The Man Upstairs will share the best holiday of their lives.

Critics' reviews

Hollywood Reporter
"Katharine Hepburn is simply marvelous."

Los Angeles Times
"A charmer of a movie, at once funny and poignant. It also boasts of Ryan O’Neal's best performance."
