The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming is a 1966 American comedy film based on the 1961 Nathaniel Benchley novel The Off-Islanders. When a Soviet submarine gets stuck on a sandbar off the coast of a New England island, its commander (Theodore Bikel) orders his second-in-command, Lieutenant Rozanov (Alan Arkin), to get them moving again before there is an international incident. Rozanov seeks assistance from the island locals, including the police chief (Brian Keith) and a vacationing television writer (Carl Reiner), while trying to allay their fears of a Communist invasion by claiming he and his crew are Norwegian sailors. The film was released to critical acclaim, earning two Golden Globes at the 1967 ceremony as well as four Academy Award nominations.
