Robert J. Horner, a one-eyed, no-legged director/producer from the 20's and 30's.  He couldn't get anyone to finance his films, so he asked actors for money, then refused to cast them.  This got him arrested more than once.

He directed 40 movies, but only 4 have ratings.  Of those only one is above 5.0.  Here they are:

Director
(5.78) - Across the Plains (1928)
(4.86) - The Apache Kid's Escape (1930)
(4.77) - The Kid from Arizona (1931)
(3.66) - The Phantom Cowboy (1935)

The movies he produced aren't any better:

Producer
(5.64) - Across the Plains (1928)
(4.84) - 45 Calibre Echo (1932)
(4.81) - The Apache Kid's Escape (1930)
(4.64) - The Kid from Arizona (1931)
(3.68) - The Border Menace (1934)
(2.26) - Pueblo Terror (1931)
