Trivia / Moscow on the Hudson

  • Fake Nationality: In addition to Williams' obvious example, Cuban-Venezuelan actress Maria Conchita Alonso plays Vladimir's Italian girlfriend.
  • Fake Russian: Robin Williams isn't Russian. However, this trope is averted with most of the other Russian characters, who are played by the genuine article.
    • Averted with the dialogue - Williams is speaking real, conversational Russian.
  • Technology Marches On: Good luck finding a transistor radio like the one at Lucia's family's celebration today.
