anonymous movie credits?
What is the name that is mostly used in movie credits by actors/directors when they can’t or don’t want to use their own name?
allright… rereading my own question, I am a bit baffled as to how an actor would remain anonymous and use the Alan Smithee name
When a director decides to take his or her name off a film, it is called an Alan Smithee film. Interestingly, there was a movie in 1997 called An Alan Smithee Film: Burn, Hollywood, Burn. It ended up actually being an Alan Smithee film when Arthur Hiller took his name off the project.
When an actor can’t or won’t use her/his own name, s/he will either simply not appear in the credits at all or will use a pseudonym. In The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Robin Williams played the King of the Moon, but was billed as Ray D. Tutto (a play on his line, “I’m sorry. You must address me by my full title: King of Everything. Rei di Tutto – but you may call me Ray. ”
I’ve never heard of a case where an actor remained on a project against her/his will to the degree that s/he wanted her/his name removed from the film.
In relation with anonymous, does any one else think V for Vendetta was an excellent movie?
I mean it fits perfectly with what is happening politically right now!!
It is absolutely an excellent film. I concur 100%
