Adele Jergens as Reva, is what is best in this western.
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
