Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire on Steiner Street. While working at What Dreams May Come, Robin Williams told me that during the filming of Mrs. Doubtfire he would often walk unnoticed around the streets of San Francisco in character as Mrs. Doubtfire. He said he'd go to porno stores and ask in his old-lady voice for a certain tape behind the counter.
