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.

Sugarfoot/tenderfoot
7 June 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For anyone who remembers the Warner Brothers television series Sugarfoot that starred Will Hutchins now having seen the Randolph Scott western from Warner Brothers of the same name, I can state categorically that they have only one thing in common. The theme from Sugarfoot the TV series I recognized immediately as the opening credits rolled. Other than that, there is nothing in common.

In fact I've never heard the expression Sugarfoot. I've heard tenderfoot and that's what Scott is. He's a Confederate war veteran going west to maybe establish a freighting business. As the opening scenes show he and a future rival Raymond Massey just don't like each other and resolve to stay out of each other's way, but as the movie unfolds that proves impossible.

Although Raymond Massey has done many a villainous role and some of them in westerns, he's not quite right as a gunslinger outlaw. A year later Massey co-starred with Randolph Scott in Carson City and he was much better cast in that film.

For a Sugarfoot/tenderfoot Scott is a fast learner though something of a fathead in regard to his code of southern chivalry. By the end of the film he's pretty handy with a six shooter.

Adele Jergens plays the saloon entertainer that Scott and Massey are after and Arthur Hunnicutt and Hank Worden make colorful sidekicks. Not the best Randolph Scott western from the post World War II era, but for his legion of fans good enough.
