Big Bad Mama

Postby Ryan Matney » April 11th, 2011, 1:50 pm

I recently watched the great american classic film 'Big Bad Mama' and I noticed there is a scene where William Shatner is playing poker and is seen to spring the cards and deal a second.

Anyone know who did the hand work in the movie?

Nobody Knows?

Maybe Shatner did it himself.

I believe my dear friend Larry Anderson did the springing of the cards.

Larry is a very successful actor but is best known in the magic community as the host of the Jaw Droppers video's and for his work on TV series "The Magician" in addition to working with Mark Wilson on The Mark Wilson Course of Magic.

If you watch Big Bad Mama, again you will see him in several scenes of the movie.
