Siegel finished the film, but refused credit because he felt the film was Totten's, and that he himself had contributed little. Totten refused to take credit because he had been fired. The Directors Guild allowed the two to use the pseudonym "Alan Smithee" for the first time in film history. Siegel writes about the incident in his autobiography, "A Siegel Film."
