Best film by director Alan Smithee?


He's had quite a diverse career, directing westerns, comedy, horror films, romances, TV movies, animated films, pretty much everything in between. Additionally, he's done work as a cinematographer, writer, assistant director, music video director, and actor. He even got to make his own biopic with An Alan Smithee Movie: Burn Hollywood Burn! Wow, what a career! Though alot of his films are pretty bad, I'm sure he's had at least a few good ones.

You do realize that is a fictitious name used when the real director doesn't want his name used, right?
