Storyline

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.

Trivia

In the late 1950s Warner Bros. changed the film's title to "Swirl of Glory" to avoid confusion with its TV series of the same name. It has since reverted to its original title. See more »

Adele Jergens as Reva, is what is best in this western.
16 November 2011 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When I was about ten years old and already had a passion for westerns, I used to pass in front of Cine Bandeirantes in São Paulo, a popular movie theater, and look for the posters of the coming attractions. When it was a western I used to hope that it would be restricted only up to ten years old. But that was not the case with "Sugarfoot" the Brazilian title being "Talhado em Granito", which was restricted up to fourteen. And I craved to see this film. Seeing it now, makes me aware one more time of how we change and the times change. This is a routine Scott western,which starts quite well as the characters are introduced. Most remarkable is Adele Jergens as Reva, a saloon singer with a strong personality. She does an excellent musical number about a guy she meets and thinks will order wine, but asks for two beers instead and for her to pay the bill. Raymond Massey, the villain and Scott arrive at the same time in Prescott, Arizona and each will go his own way on different sides of the law. Scott becomes friendly with S.Z. Sakall,( less of a caricature than in most of his films), and starts earning enough money to make a living and get married to Reva, but Massey is there to spoil his plans.The plot gets a bit too fast moving from about half of the film and I had to go back on the DVD to be able to understand. If you would take all the Scott westerns (leave the Boettichers out, they are all great) this one would be average
