It's not an example of a movie's director making a cameo, but Spies Like Us has to be the movie with the most cameos by directors of other movies.

Keyser Soze is Bryan Singer?

SPOILER ALERT, subby, you asshole!

I thought Keyser Soze was that blonde chick from that Happy Endings.

Sam Raimi is the detective that gets shot to pieces in the shootout scene in Miller's Crossing

Great find subby because I just watched The Usual Suspects again last night.Had no idea Singer did the boat shot,even after reading the extensive Wiki.article about the movie.
Spoiler Alert: Soze translates to English as talkative(roughly).

Well, I was surprised as hell to see Michael Bay in Mystery Men!

Supposedly, Quinten Tarantino was in Django Unchained.  Anybody happen to spot him?

Those are Speilberg's hands during the face-ripping scene in Poltergeist.

Not sure if sarcasm, but he was one of those slavers taking Django to the mines.

The missed an even better one by Hitchcock. In "Rope" which takes place in real time and without apparent edits has the New York city skyline out the window. Off to one side is Hitch's famous profile caricature rendered in neon!

While Spielberg has no problem showing up inVanilla Sky orAustin Powers orGremlins, he doesn't seem to appear very often in his own films. He did provide the voice of the radio operator inJaws, but other than that nothing else really comes to mind.

Missed probably the most obvious cameo in someone else's film I can think of:  The Blues Brothers.  He is the clerk in the Cook County Assessor's Office.

I've seen Vanilla Sky a few times ( great movie, screw the haters) and never noticed Spielberg.

List FAILS without David Fincher's "subliminal" appearance in a splice just before the end credits in <i>Fight Club</i>. Yes, that was his torso and equipment.

How many sublinal Tylers did you count in the first third of the movie? I think i saw 5

Can't remember, but that sounds about right.

when i first saw vanilla sky, i thought it could be good, but i felt like i had already seen a better version of the movie.

/ i probably would have thought it was good if i wasn't so distracted by this notion.

He was also one of the hooded guys, i'm pretty sure. You never see his face, but he says a one liner.

Not sure if serious, but...

Open Your Eyes with a very topless Penelope Cruz is worth a look.

I'm not sure if you're joking or not.  That's Frank Oz in Blues Brothers.  He's a director, but still best known as the man behind Miss Piggy and a number of other Muppets.

My favorite director cameo is Scorsese showing up as the foul-mouthed, cuckolded passenger in Taxi Driver.

I'm not sure if YOU'RE serious.

Frank Oz is in the prison.  It is Spielberg in the Assessor's office at the end.

Oh and the guy who jumps on the table during the prison dance scene is in the Eagles.

That was a bit more than a cameo, though, wasn't it?

not being serious, i meant to imply that i really liked open your eyes, for which reason i could never give vanilla sky an honest watch through... although, cameron diaz and tom cruise are two actors i have never really cared for... so even if i had never seen open your eyes, i would probably have had a tough time getting into it.

Completely forgot about that!  I can't remember the last time I was still sober that far into Blues Brothers.

It was Spielberg's hands who rip apart that prosthetic face in the mirror in Poltergeist.  I'd paste a pic here, but its R -rated, so opted not to.

But Poltergeist was rated PG.

Director and author cameos in Sleepwalkers (Toby Hooper not pictured*, Clive Barker and Stephen King).

It's up there. Probably not coincidentally, Landis' other '85 flick "Into The Night" had quite a few in it as well.

Hitch made an appearance in most, if not all, of his movies.

Sergio Leone was the ticket taker at the train station in Once Upon A Time In America.

"Contrary to rumors, the elderly ticket seller at the train station in 1933 was not a cameo by Sergio Leone."

But that's just an unsubstantiated comment on the IMDb site, so who knows?
