The movie director who never was

Ever seen a movie directed by Alan Smithee? No you haven't, because there's no such person - yet he's the director of some two dozen movies, most of them bad, and quite a lot of TV work as well. Or credited as such. For the whole story, which is both amazing and funny, listen to:

Or you can look up Alan Smithee in Wikipedia, but where's the fun in that?
