The Short Happy Life of Alan Smithee

His online moniker was the pseudonym used by disgruntled film directors for movies so bad they disavow any association.

His avatar was J.R. “Bob” Dobbs, head of the Church of the SubGenius.

His birth name was Christopher A. Chopin, and he was an attorney from West Palm Beach, Florida. He died unexpectedly October 8, 2017.
