Postby Riversky » July 2nd, 2015, 2:15 pm

The Andy Griffith Show: Season 2, Episode 6 Opie's Hobo Friend (13 Nov. 1961)

Storyline:
Andy and Opie are going fishing when they come across a wanderer who impresses Opie with his good humor and 'magic fish talk'. The man's name is Dave Browne and it isn't long before Barney hauls him before Andy for vagrancy. Dave isn't booked and he continues to form a bond with Opie. Opie soon begins to pick up his bad habits such as avoiding work and playing hooky to go fishing. This concerns Andy who must break up this friendship and get Opie back on the right track...

At 13:34 in this video, you can see Val Kilmer do a coin roll.

And here (from The Prestige) Christian Bale does a ring roll.

Don’t know where Val Kilmer might have picked that up, but I believe that Ricky Jay and Michael Weber were consultants on "The Prestige".
