born 1968 and died 2000.
Alan Smithee is the worst director in the history of Hollywood. No its not Ed Wood, it really is Alan Smithee.
Although Alan Smithee has an advantage over Ed Wood: he never existed. He was the pseudonym used by Directors when they could prove to the directors Guild that the movie was so bad that their name would be destroyed by being associated with the it.
Thus Alan Smithee was born and with him some of the worst movies of all time. Such as the not so classic Birds II
So here’s a toast to Alan Smithee the scapegoat of useless directors.
