Olga San Juan,
Country bumpkin Aaron Slick has been unsuccessfully courting pretty young widow Josie Berry for years. Josie yearns for a fling in the big city. With $20,000 from a crooked deal stashed in their trunk, Bill Merridew and his "kissing cousin" Gladys, stars, in a relative sense, of a touring tent show stop at Josie's farm. Merridew, actually hiding out, thinks there is oil on the farm and Aaron, knowing otherwise, tricks him into buying the farm for a large sum. Josie takes the money and runs to Chicago, with Merridew, realizing he was tricked, in hot pursuit. Aaron arrives in time to keep Josie from letting Merridew "invest" her money. Written by

A decent enough watch, helped by the cast, but forgettable
Marshmallow Moon(or Aaron Slick from Punkin Crick) is an okay film, but after a few days it is not much more than that. There are a fair number of things to redeem it. The costumes, sets and photography are striking enough, and while not particularly memorable the music especially Marshmallow Moon is quite pleasant. The film is decently directed too, but the main attraction is the cast. Alan Young, Dinah Shore, Adele Jurgens and especially Robert Merrill(yes the very same Robert Merrill the baritone) give it their all and their efforts are commendable. However, the film is rather ponderously paced, complete with a hokey story, predictable set-ups and scenes comedy wise and a disjointed script. So overall, a decent watch but rather forgettable. 5/10 Bethany Cox
