Face-Up Flyers by Bruce Cervon and Dai Vernon
Epilogue by Karl Fulves
Issue 4 1968
Page 27 et seq.
also The Cervon File by by Bruce Cervon 1988
Personal Comment: Really nice version if one puts in the practice. If you noticed, this was thought up 1968... I was born 10 years later. This makes me appreciate all the magicians of the past. Think about it: This routine, the way it is would be suitable for a modern day audience 43 year later. Even if you do not intend to use it, this is worth studying because it teaches you a nice way to get a break under an x-card. Dai Vernon is credited, as he apparently reduced the plot down to just the four aces, as the original plot involved an extra indifferent card. However the the method to the trick was devised by Bruce Cervon.
