The Six Shooter: “The Shooting of Wyatt King” 5/20/54
Jimmy Stewart’s laid back portrayal of Britt Ponset made it possible for The Six Shooter to range from adventure to tragedy to comedy throughout the run of the series. This episode has a little bit of everything in it, blending humor with great character moments.
An infamous outlaw is found badly wounded. When Britt rides into town, everyone thinks he must have done it and he can’t get anyone to believe that he didn’t. Even the outlaw gives him credit.
Britt couldn’t be more aggravated by getting accolades he didn’t earn, but when he discovers who really did the shooting, that only leads to more trouble.
