That Alan Smithee gets around. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

I think Smithee had a film at the Sundance Film Festival this year, but since he's so reclusive he didn't grant any interviews at its premiere.

I would really like to hear Bart Sibrel admit the hoax is a hoax. That will never happen though.

Wow! The CIA, FBI, NSA and NASA all got to Smithee /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Can we be sure that this article isn't a hoax in itself? I mean, some of the quotes sound a bit unbelievable, such as the supposed KGB agent. The whole tone of the article sounds a little odd too, not like an interview.

And finally, did anyone notice the name of the writer?

(later)

You might want to read the last paragraph again more carefully too:



In this hoax-upon-a-hoax-upon-a-hoax world, how can we believe anyone? Indeed, how can readers even believe an article they read on starstuff.org? After all, it is the season for hoaxes. "My advice is to trust no one," says Smithee. "Don't just believe anything you hear. You really have to get all sides of the story and make sure you aren't getting hoaxed yourself."

If you research the career and works of Alan Smithee, you'll find that these quotes are exactly the sort of thing he would say.

Alan Smithee is a disgrace to all named Alan, and April F(ool) Jaques is a real jokester. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

I sympathize with you Alan, but look at it this way: Alan Smithee is a stand-up guy. He takes credit for his movies when other directors would walk away in frustration.

Actually, it would explain why they didn't mention the Moon rocks or LRRRs. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Very true. He's also hard-working, as evident by his vast body of work (http://us.imdb.com/Name?Smithee,+Alan).

I particularly like the link to BA at the bottom of the article. I'm off to razz the folks on the FOX forum boards.

Wow, that brings back memories... I did an advanced search for "conspiracy theory moon" (setting it to look through all message from the beginning of time) and it brought back all the messages written when the Fox special originally aired... including messages written by Bart Sibrel.

Crap! I've been bamboozeled. The starstuff article appears to be a hoax in itself. The Author, April F. Jaques (April Fools Joke) and the producers name Alan Smithee (a pseudonym used by producers who which to disassociate themselves from a production) were the tip offs. Based on the other articles from the site, I took the account as genuine. Poop!

Look on the bright side; now you can re-read Jay's posts in this thread with new appreciation.

I read the article and then posted a response after a minor check of validity of the site. Blew right past your post (I'm usually better than that.) where you questioned its validity.

(I've been kinda sidetracked argueing with others about Section 1, Article 9, paragraph 2 of the US Constitution and Amendments 1 and 4. It sometimes doesn't pay to have half a dozen arguements going on at the same time.)
