Britt Ponset's Christmas Carol from The Six Shooter

The man in the saddle is angular and long-legged. His skin is sun-dyed brown. The gun in his holster is gray steel and rainbow mother-of-pearl, its handle unmarked. People call them both "the Six Shooter." In this episode, Britt Ponset meets a young boy who has run away from home and who seems to be lacking the holiday spirit. To cheer the lad, Ponset tells him a Wild-Wild-Westernized version of Charles Dicken’s immortal holiday ghost story, A Christmas Carol. Starring James Stewart. Broadcast December 20th, 1953.
