Jimmy Stewart brought his memorable voice and considerable acting ability to the roll of Britt Ponsett as the Six Shooter. The opening of the show is one of the most memorable in radio play history. Airing on NBC from September 1953 to June 1954, there were just 39 episodes during the show's run.
Britt Ponsett was a laid-back cowboy drifter who found himself in all kinds of situations from comical to dangerous. Stewart was the perfect choice for the title character alternately portraying the character's easy attitude and the stress of the tense situations with the emotion in his voice. If you enjoy Jimmy Stewart's down-to-earth, folksy delivery, you will definitely enjoy The Six Shooter.
