Last night there was a rebroadcast of Magnum episode #57612 "Squeeze Play", co-starring the late Dick Shawn.

This was the episode which featured Orson Welles as the voice of "Robin Masters".

Does anyone know who did the fancy card cutting in the opening scene's card game?

The cards used had crimson backs with the initials "BB" imprinted (for Shawn's character, "Buzz Benoit").

Tom Ogden definately did some "hand work" on a Magnum P.I. episode, but I don't know which one. He's out of the country right now, but I'll find out as soon as possible.

Tom Ogden did do the hand work for this episode. The scenes with Shawn had already been shot, so he never met him. He remembers the deck well. They only had two decks made up; they were plastic coated and didn't handle too well.
