Out Of This World is a classic card effect created by Paul Curry in 1942. Many magicians have performed their own variations of this trick. It has been billed as the trick that fooled Winston Churchill, after amateur magician Harry Green performed it for him. The plot, history, relevance in magic, and many variations are the subject of a 2009 book by Brent Geris, Bob Postelnik and Duppy Demetrius called Best of All Worlds.

Effect: A spectator separates a deck of cards into reds and blacks without looking at the faces of the cards.

The method, though simple, is well hidden, and is usually enhanced by the presentation of the performer.
