INT. INTERROGATION ROOM – PRESENT
This whole scene is shot using only extreme close-ups of eyes, cards, tapping fingers and mouths. We open on a bright pair of eyes. One is bruised and slightly swollen, but this does not detract from their clarity.
Script (British accent)
“Three card brag is a simple form of poker; you are dealt only three cards and these you can’t change.
If you don’t look at your cards you’re a `blind man’ and you only put in half the stake.
Three of any kind is the highest you can get: the odds are four hundred and twenty-five to one. Then it’s a running flush – you know, all the same suit running in order; then a straight, then a flush, then a pair, and finally whatever the highest card you are holding. There are some tell-tale signs that are valuable; I am not going to tell you them because it took me long enough to learn them, but these can only help a player, not make one.
So you want to play?”
DISSOLVE TO BLACK. THE FIRST OF THE CREDITS APPEAR ON THE SCREEN.
