During the making of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) Sean Connery and director Stephen Norrington did not get along well at all.

Lots of behind-the-scenes fiascos went on during the production of this one.

Legal issues regarding the rights of certain characters, ex. The Invisible Man, resulted in characters having to be dropped and details being changed. Artists have stated that the film was not loyal at all to its source material.

Stephen Norrington did not like the studio being "the big boss" of the project and felt they were holding him back. He also did not like that Sean Connery's high salary prevented other big names from joining the film.


Sean Connery has expressed disinterest with the film but he may be talking out of frustration from what went on during the making of it and not really about the actual film.

This was the last motion picture for Sean Connery before he retired from acting and Stephen Norrington has vowed never to direct another movie after this.

Alan Moore the writer of the graphic novel on which the film was based, was so put off by what they did to his work, that he publicly declared that he didn't want any of his work to be adapted into movies.

Of course, Hollywood did so anyway, making feature films of V for Vendetta and the recent Watchmen. However, Moore had his name taken off Watchmen's credits.

I remember going out for dinner with my Father that night (Saturday) and insisting we had to be back by 8 PM so I could see the KISS movie.

This was pre-cable, pre-VCR, so if you missed it, that was it! I don't even think the movie was rerun for several years. Wonder why.
Me and one of my sister's also watched it when it aired.

Oh gosh, Rabbit Test. That was Billy Crystal's first leading role on the big screen, I believe (he was still on Soap then) - directed by the one and only Joan Rivers. Yes, THAT Joan Rivers.

She never directed again!! The user comments, on the other hand, are extremely hilarious.

Thanks to Joan Rivers being mentioned it just dawned on me that someone else was a one time only director, horror novelist Stephen King with 1986's Maximum Overdrive.

It was a horror comedy film based off of his short story "Trucks" found in his Night Shift book starring Emilio Estevez.

It had a ridiculous plot of trucks getting a mind of their own and humans having to protect themselves in a diner from the killer trucks trying to break in.


King won a Razzie award for worst director and stated that the film is "a moron movie" and he never directed anything else besides this. However, he is said to be very appreciative for the movie's cult following.

Patricia Birch is another one-time director. She directed Grease 2 (and was main choreographer in the original).

If you want to get technical she directed one television movie with Drew Barrymore. Grease 2 was her only feature film.
