  • American History X was actually an Alan Smithee film.

    I always heard that the director was brutal...which makes sense, because he really didn't do a whole lot after that movie.

      Would that have made it the best Alan Smithee film of all time? (dubious honor)

      I read that the director wanted to take his name off of American History X, and when he was refused he sued over it. Pretty sure that was the nail in the coffin for his career.

        He still retains directing credit on the film, but wanted his name removed and replaced with "Humpty Dumpty."

        It's probably the best end result of an unbelievably troubled production in Hollywood history.
