Who Is Alan Smithee?
(2002 TV Movie)
This documentary on the elusive director 'Alan Smithee' was first shown on the American Movie Classics (AMC) cable channel. We learn where the name came from and why the Directors Guild of America (DGA) first allowed his name to be used on
Death of a Gunfighter (1969)
. The film follows the numerous problems that director
had during the production and post-production of the film
American History X (1998)
and why the DGA refused to allow Alan Smithee to be credited for that film.
