I am interesting how cardsharpers was presented on movie by demonstrating skills with cards. I know:

1. ...continuavano a chiamarlo Trinita, 1971, Antonio Binarelli
2. The Sting, 1973, John Scarne
3. Il Grande Bluff, 1976, Antonio Binarelli
4. Shade, 2004, Paul Wilson

I know some movies from previous socialust countries like "Tegeran 43" or "Double trap", but I afraide that names do not give any informations for peoples who communicate here. :-)))

So. Who know more? Black and white movies?

Jay Ose consulted on a movie. I thought it was The Sting but I may be mistaken.

Ose consulted on, and appeared in, The Cincinnati Kid.

You should also see The Sting and The Flim-Flam Man to see card sharps at work. Jay Ose advised on and is in The Flim-Flam Man.
