Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick (aka Marshmallow Moon in the UK and the Philippines and Härkiä, heiniä ja hakkailua in Finland) was a 1952 'hillbilly' movie made by Paramount Pictures, directed by Claude Binyon and produced by William Perlberg and George Seaton. It is based on a 1919 play by Walter Benjamin Hare. The cinematography was by Charles Lang and the costume design by Edith Head.

The film stars Alan Young, Dinah Shore, Adele Jergens, Robert Merrill, Minerva Urecal, Martha Stewart (not to be confused with Martha Stewart, television host and home-decorating mogul), and Veda Ann Borg.

It is a musical of a dreamy farm widow, played by Shore, obsessed with moving to the city. She is courted by shy-bumpkin neighbor (Young), and is taken by on-the-lam crooks (Merrill and Jergens).
