The performer takes out a small leather wallet and from it; he removes a poker-chip and four postcards, each bearing the image of a well known movie-killer.
These are set out on the table and the performer then asks the spectator to imagine the following scene: All four of the killers are in a room, when all of a sudden the inevitable happens and gun shots are fired.
When the smoke clears only one man is left standing!
The survivor is the owner of the poker chip.
The spectator is asked to choose the killer he believes to be the owner of the chip, which is then placed onto the card bearing the image of the chosen survivor.
Amazingly the performer proves that the spectator’s selection is the correct one! ed
