Made-up film director name. When a movie turns out so bad the real director doesn't want his name associated with the project they may use this name instead. Sidney Lumet, Dennis Hopper and Sam Raimi have used the pseudonym respectively.
"I can't believe my movie turned out so crappy, better slap Adam Smithee on the credits or else my career's over."
