Fiction is way better.

The film is from 1942, and it's called, The Talk of the Town. It stars Cary Grant and the incredibly talented and extremely hot, Jean Arthur. The roles are reversed, though. It was him hiding in her attic.

Great flick.

There's something about this that just scares the beejesus out of me.

It's like the perfect kick off to a horror movie or something.

no, really, it's a comedy. and a good one.

SNL did a skit on that with, "the call is coming from inside the car!"

I read that website primarily for the comments on the inane articles.

So, did the cops go ahead and shoot Wahlman instead?
This polite man seems to have the IQ of a newspaper employee.
My wife didn't believe me when I used the same story to explain the woman in the closet.
Everyone in this story has something going wrong upstairs.

Oh yeah, that's right. The original was a pretty good movie.

I'm in Seattle (well, Greater Seattle)- how come I didn't get issued an Attic Woman (tm)?

Hey, if she can cook and clean and walk the Corgis, I might let her stay...

In Vegas that's called a squatter, and they can ruin your life. Best just throw her out on her ass along with her stuff without warning. It's much easier to not let them back in than to try and get them thrown out.

I remember a version of this from years back, in Vancouver.

Someone did a renovation on a house and included an access door to a largish attic, and then some people moved in. The original homeowners had no idea... I can find no trace of a newspaper article (the Vancouver Sun thinks last year is ancient history), but I did find this---

This guy in Bromwich UK found twelve immigrants in his:

I'm sorry to differ with you sir, but you are the caretaker. You've always been the caretaker. I should know sir. I've always been here.

"Yeah, and Jimmy said I could hit it, get my meals cooked and the house cleaned"
