Alan Smithee

Developer Biography

Alan Smithee is a pseudonym most commonly used by film directors who do not want their name to appear on the finished product. Generally the pseudonym is used when the director is unhappy with the finished work or it is used on a variation of the work (a bowdlerized version, an extended version, or a re-edited version) which differs from their original vision.
