Considered by Bud Abbott and Lou Costello fans to be their "lost" film, it was never actually lost but was unavailable for viewing for many years due to legal issues with the Damon Runyon estate. The film was televised decades ago (presumably before the legal issues arose) but was never released on video, and was not included in MCA/Universal's original DVD sets of Abbott and Costello films that came out in 2004. In 2008 the rights issues were cleared and "It Ain't Hay" was included in the DVD release "Abbott and Costello: The Complete Universal Pictures Collection." See more »
When Grover places his $100 bet, he places it on Teabiscuit's entered number. However, the horse with that number didn't win, so the ticket is worthless. Never mind that Teabiscuit won the race; bets at the track are on numbers, not on names. See more »

In this film, I think Costello wanted to add a bit more depth to his character. He is a taxi driver and Abbott is is pal. Costello inadvertently kills a horse and takes it upon himself to replace it. as Mr Warner, the bad tempered manager who keeps popping up in the film. The songs have been blasted but I rather like them.
There is real character to this film and a good atmosphere. There are many funny gags here and Eugene pallette is hilarious
I would of liked Erle C. Kenton to of directed more than just 3 Abbott and Costello movies. he directed some of 'Hit the Ice' too till he fell out with Lou and was replaced with Charles Lamont who said it would only be a one off!!! This is a very pleasing film for Abbott and Costello fans and the kids would love it too. They don't make em like this anymore!
