Enclosing a few pix and a video of an unusual 5-ball game with dual light scoring on a one player machine.

There are red and green scoring opportunities which will allow replays for either or both colors. Also, two gobble holes guard a bulls eye target and one is challenged to score replays when the specials are lit.

This game is a solid unrestored example with original glass, plastics, playfield and cabinet. Mid 50’s woodrails are a favorite of mine and always enjoy the Wayne Neyens design and Roy Parker artwork and color scheme. The theme is vague, but the leggy dancers with fans strongly suggest burlesque.

As with all my games that are under service contract with Pinrescue, a shout out to Russ for his assistance with them, and for hosting the videos that I make of the games.

Beautiful! The tie-in from the dancer to the game art was awesome.

Thanks for the video! Disappointed because the girl didn't finish her act and you never hit the gobble hole! Very impressed how active that playing field is! Ball really coming off those slings! Nice!

You'd be disappointed, too, to see the end of the video. Film was circa 1935. What was considered risque then is routine on today's television. Or the beach. Yep, disappointed that I missed the gobble hole during the filming. Of course, gobble holes catch everything when you don't want them to.

Thanks to the eagle eye of another viewer, I received a PDF file of the "correct" score cards for the game. Was able to print out on manila stock and, yes, looks better. While I had the glass off, I also replaced the broken #2 rollover button. I originally hesitated to replace the button because new replacements are thinner and whiter and would look different. But then remembered that I had an extra one from the parts pile.

That's one pretty playing field! Looks like a fun game!
