A Story Unto Itself
13 January 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I do so wish that the 7 people who voted on this film enough to give it a rating would have written something on it. Presumably they saw the film enough to give an opinion.

Which is why I will not put a star rating on it. Reading in the Citadel Film series book, The Films Of Errol Flynn, the story behind the film and the reason it hasn't been seen in the USA sounds like the great basis for a film itself.

Long story short, Flynn and partner/producer and sometime character actor William Marshall did this small film in Europe about some soldiers killed at Anzio Beach on their way to heaven. After completion Flynn and Marshall quarreled. Flynn got the original negative destroyed, but Marshall then recreated it with outtakes. It got some showing in Europe, but has never been shown here, at least not at the time that Citadel Film series book was written.

Given the times, the film also put Flynn in the crosshairs of some professional anti-Communists with its pacifist message. He repudiated it completely. His contract with Warner Brothers also was called into play here.

Maybe one day we'll see Hello God in the USA in a formal setting. One thing for sure, no question it will be the director's cut.
