The first appearence of Britt Ponset as the Six Shooter was as a Western drama for the HOLLYWOOD STAR PLAYHOUSE on April 13, 1952.

The show was titled "The Six Shooter" and Jimmy Stewart played the lead. The same script was used for the audition of THE SIX SHOOTER series, again with Mr. Stewart as Britt. Alotrt a year and a half after the HOLLYWOOD STAR PLAYHOUSE show, on September 20, 1953, Mr. Stewart brought the series to the air. The script used for the HOLLYWOOD STAR PLAYHOUSE drama and the audition was used again, with a slightly different opening, on Nov. 1,1953, for the seventh show in the series. Jack Johnstone was the producer and director. The writer for the entire series was Frank Burt. With only 39 shows in the series, it is frequently overlooked in favour of more long-running Westerns. Don't pass up on this one. It's one of the best.
