California sure is a strange place.

Alan Smithee was in Destination Vegas (1995) with Richard (I) Lynch
Richard (I) Lynch was in Happy Hooker, The (1975) with Nicholas Pryor
Nicholas Pryor was in Collateral Damage (2002) with Arnold Schwarzenegger

Alan Smithee has an Arnie number of 3.

Didn't they officially retire the Alan Smithee name, and switched to a bunch of other names that weren't so obvious a little while ago?

This is good, but still, I was expecting an expose on Michael Vartan and Victor Garber. Sigh.

Smithee's cut of Dune was better than Lynch's, too. *runs*

Great post!
Lynch's Dune sucked all around, both as a movie and as a supposed adaptation of the book.
