Scudda Hoo Scudda Hay was the first Hollywood film that Marilyn Monroe
appeared in with a bit part as a farm girl and a one-line speaking role. According to most sources, the line was subsequently edited out. Marilyn believed that her line had been cut and repeated this information in a 1955 television interview. Disputing this commonly held notion is noted Monroe expert James Haspiel, who maintains that in complete versions of the film, her line is intact. This discrepancy aside, Monroe authorities agree she appears in a scene at a lake, where people can be seen relaxing and swimming. In the background two girls are rowing in a canoe. Their faces are not visible, but, one of them is Marilyn.
