  • Description

    "Never play cards with a man who can handle cards like this expert - Prof. Collins." C/U of a man cutting and shuffling cards. He performs various fancy shuffles and tricks, flicking the cards up in the air and catching them. We then see some of his stunts in slow motion. We are shown something that is as good as a five ace hand for putting your opponent off. "Try these, when you get home. All you need is about a couple of years' practising." He spins single cards up in the air and catches them again. We see this in slow motion.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 637.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
