Scudda Hoo! Scudda Hay! is a 1948 comedy film known for Marilyn Monroe's earliest speaking role, a one-line bit part.
The film tells the story of a farm hand who tries to tame his employer's mules and woo his employer's daughter at the same time. The film stars June Haver, Lon McCallister, Walter Brennan, Anne Revere and Natalie Wood.
After having been signed to 20th Century Fox as a contract player, Marilyn Monroe had her first bit part playing Betty in this film. Dressed in a pinafore and walking down the steps of a church, she says, "Hi, Rad" Haver's character, who responds, "Hi, Betty." After Monroe's stardom, 20th Century Fox began claiming that Monroe's only line in the film had been cut out, an anecdote Monroe repeated on Person to Person in 1955, but film historian James Haspiel says her line is intact and she also appears in a shot with herself and another woman paddling a canoe.
