'Moscow on the Hudson' (1984)
Robin starred in this unusual but engrossing comedy about a Russian man who defects to the U.S. by becoming a Bloomingdale's security guard in New York. It's one thing that Williams plays a convincing Russian whose enthusiasm about an American life seems real; it's another that Williams' performance fuels a patriotic film that is never heavy-handed or jingoistic, but observational.
