You might recognize Ricky Jay from his role as a cameraman in the eminently dreadful film Boogie Nights, as the techno-terrorist Henry Gupta in Tomorrow Never Dies, or from the HBO series Deadwood. But aside from acting, Jay was a master card sharp in the finest old school tradition. In this hour-long special produced by David Mamet, Jay tells the story of the history of the card cheat and conman, all the while showing the deftness of a lifetime devoted to sleight of hand and making a deck of cards do his bidding. In short, don’t play blackjack with this man.
