  • Three of his television appearances in the late 1950s were based on episodes from his radio series, "The Six Shooter", in which Stewart played cowboy "Britt Ponset". On February 10, 1957, Stewart played "Ponset" on an episode of General Electric Theater (1953) titled "The Town with a Past". The episode was adapted from the "Silver Annie" episode of "The Six Shooter", and re-teamed Stewart with Beulah Bondi, his frequent co-star from films such as It's a Wonderful Life (1946) and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939). Two other Frank Burt scripts from the radio series also made it to television with Stewart. "Brit Ponset's Christmas Carol", adapted from the Charles Dickens classic, played on General Electric Theater (1953) again as "Trail to Christmas". Stewart directed the program and also played the lead character (here named Bart, not Brit). "Trail to Christmas" was broadcast on December 15, 1957. Two years later, in December, 1959, Stewart starred in the Startime (1959) episode "Cindy's Fella", which had been produced for the radio series as "When the Shoe Doesn't Fit". This time, Brit Ponset became Azel Dorsey, a peddler.
