As with SawAWomanInHalf, real trick to this trick is well enough known that fictional depictions may feel free to discuss it. The clever part is not where it appears to be: it's not that the magician has a secret way of detecting which card the mark has selected, it's that the magician has a way (a technique called the Magician's Force) of making sure the mark picks the card he wants them to pick.

* In ''FrankAndErnest'', Frank had Ernest do this once -- and found it by checking the early edition of the paper.
* Jason Fox does this with Peter in FoxTrot. Peter quickly figures out how Jason does it- every card in the deck is the same.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/SwingTime,'' this is Pop's favorite magic trick. It's implied that he accomplishes it by slipping the ace into the deck when he cuts. This becomes ChekhovsSkill when he uses it to beat a marked deck to win a bandleader's contract.
