Errol Flynn made this obscure item for his friend William Marshall quickly in Italy, as an excuse to get out of his Warner Bros. contract (which stipulated that he must appear in first-class, major studio releases). HELLO GOD is an antiwar film starring Flynn as an "unknown soldier" who

tells the stories of four young soldiers who were killed at Anzio Beach during WW II. Flynn tells us the boys' hopes, fears, and desires as they approach heaven and are permitted to enter, though they have left earth much sooner than God expected. Flynn's ruse against the studio backfired on him.

After he renegotiated his contract with Warner Bros., he sued to have the distribution of HELLO GOD halted. Flynn arranged to have the negative of the film "kidnaped" from the lab in Hollywood by an associate, but Marshall countered by restructuring the film with outtakes and additional footage

shot in California. This led to a falling-out between Flynn and Marshall after Flynn stated that Marshall misrepresented the film and that it was detrimental to the public welfare due to its pacifist nature. The lawsuits were never completely settled, and the revised film was shown only a few

times, and only in Europe.
