This is the brainchild of professional photographer and friend 'Vic Pinto'. Known in the commercial field throughout the world and a magical nut if ever I met one. Few men would go to the trouble and expense to produce a quality product of this nature unless he was (almost) out of his mind!
'Pinto' built a special set in his studio, employed a beautiful model and with his creative genius turned out 'The Pinto Showgirl' — Small, exclusive apparatus which we guarantee will create havoc with the boys in the bar.
Routined by 'Ken Brooke' here, briefly, is what happens —
From a small wallet you remove a playing card which has been permanently sealed in a plastic container. The face of this card is not shown.
Spectator is handed a pack of cards and is asked to deal them face down, one at a time and stop dealing whenever he wishes. That card is turned face upwards. The sealed package is turned over and, believe it or not, the spectator finds a duplicate of the selected card right inside the package!
Saying this is not the trick he intended to show, the performer explains that he was rehearsing his 'big show' the previous night and his assistant picked up one of the large cards he uses and at that very moment he had a premonition that the very card she was holding would be selected tonight. So saying, the magician removes a beautifully coloured photograph of a showgirl holding a large playing card, back towards the camera — The magician states that the card is a duplicate of the card spectator* stopped the deal at a few moments ago —
