Storyline

Sugarfoot  Jackson Redan, a former Confederate officer, arrives in Arizona expecting to start his life anew on land he hopes to buy and cultivate. He meets saloon-girl Reva Cairn and town merchant Don Miguel Wormser. Though he rescues Reva from the attentions of Jacob Stint, a sworn enemy from his past, he treats her coldly and considers her beneath him. When Wormser entrusts Redan with four-thousand dollars, which is later stolen by Stint, the merchant forgives him, providing Redan a strong example of being a friend. On business for Wormser, Jackson outbids Wormser’s rival-merchant Asa Goodhue, making another enemy for himself. He recovers the stolen money from Stint, but suffers a bullet wound and Reva nurses him back to health. Stint and Goodhue continue to cheat the townspeople, ranchers and farmers out of army contracts for their produce, and Jackson sets out to put an end to their villainy.

Top notch Western

Sugarfoot  Another grand western with Randolph Scott which has him playing a naive southerner who rides into the town of Prescott, Arizona, and soon makes friends as well as enemies. He is soon given a chance to make some dinero by helping S.k Sakall( wonderful as ever here) to purchase merchandise. He also is pitted against the villain Raymond Massey and there is a grand conflict. One of the memorable scenes is the one where Massey has to contend with injuns and Scott and Arthur Hunnicutt. Another memorable scene is when Scott and Hunnicutt tie the sidekick villain and threaten to let a rattler bite him. This western is my favourite Scott western, mainly because every time i watch it it cheers me up. Its one of those films that bring me out of my sad moods. Its the music, the song, the action, the dialogue and Randolph Scott. Classic!!!!!!!

Jackson “Sugarfoot” Redan

 

Randolph Scott stars as Jackson Redan, a former confederate officer who moves to Prescott, Arizona to start a fresh new life. But even as he makes new friends he is blighted by an old adversary and forced to take up his guns once again.

Sugarfoot the film is not to be confused with the TV Western series of the same name that ran from 1957-1961, tho a big connection does come with Arthur Hunnicutt who stars in both. Also featuring Adele Jergens, Raymond Massey, S.Z. Sakall, & Hank Worden, it seems to be a little known Oater in the considerable career of genre legend Scott. It’s directed by Edwin L. Marin who collaborated with Scott on 7 other movies, cinematography is by Wilfred M. Cline {Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park, California} and the score is provided by Max Steiner.

Adapted by Russell S. Hughes from a novel by Clarence Budington Kelland, Sugarfoot runs at just 80 minutes and is the kind of no nonsense Western that was rife in the 1950s. It plays out a simple story with the minimum of fuss, throws in some solid punch and gun play, and lets Randy Scott carry the movie on his elegantly chiselled shoulders. There’s some disappointment with Massey’s villain turn not having enough to do and certainly the romance with the perky Jergens is a touch too formulaic. But with Scott perfect as the gentleman having to get a bit dark of mind, and Hunnicutt on splendid side-kick form, the negatives are but mere specks on an otherwise decent Western moun
