Statesmen have you talked to the man upstairs
The Man Upstairs is a 1992 American made-for-television comedy-drama film directed by George Schaefer and starring Katharine Hepburn and Ryan O'Neal. The film originally premiered on CBS on December 6, 1992.
Hepburn stars as an elderly woman who discovers an escaped convict (O'Neal) hiding in her attic. At first she is horrified, but gradually she becomes fascinated by the fast-talking fugitive and permits him to stay in her house while the local sheriff and his men hunt for him. A relationship develops between the unlikely pair: he finds the home he never had and she loses her loneliness.
Hepburn was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Miniseries or Television Film at the 50th Golden Globe Awards.
