That's funny,
About 30 years ago I was in Norway on business and the Norwegians who BTW speak fluent English (British English) picked up on my New York accent immediately. I didn't sound exactly like a diplomat at the UN.
I asked how they knew that their answer was watching movies like Serpico The French Connection and The Godfather I and II. And Kojak on TV.
