Quoted from bob_e:
Big Indian and Duotron ???
First one looks right but I think the one to the right only has 4 score reels (Duotron/Magnotron has 5)
Latest hotels.com commercial has a bunch of pins in it. Adams family and many more.
Just spotted a Eight Ball Deluxe (first run) in Diggstown starring James Woods and Louis Gossett Jr.
Just saw a bunch of pins on an episode of Kojak (yes it's the Decades binge again). The ones I could ID:
Gottlieb Grand Slam, Bally Flicker, and several woodrails in a bowling alley (they got blown up w/TNT) . Also spotted a Bally Nip-it, Bally Amigo, & third unindentified game in another scene. This episode must have been filmed after the ban on pinballs in NYC was lifted (1977-1978)
In the movie "The Toy" starring Jackie Gleason and Richard Pryor spotted a Gottlieb Volcano, Haunted House, and a Mars God of War (product placement perhaps?)
Back again w/another sighting (sort of). In "The Accused" starring Jodie Foster we all know about the Slam Dunk ( re-themed Space Invaders) and the Scorpion pinball machines but nobody's mentioned the Geine also present. Some of the video games (for those who care) were Tron, Satan's Hollow, and I think a Lock & Chase (not certain-not in focus and always briefly shown).
Quoted from SteveP3:
I still can't figure out what's in Donnie Brasco, there are multiple games throughout the movie. Someone mentioned 'Big Game' but it does not appear to be a match at all when referencing the ipdb.
Here's two pics from the movie from different angles, if anyone can identify this that would be neat. So far the internet turns up nothing for me. Appears to be a 4 player EM.
It's a Williams Honey.
Quoted from shock_me:
Dazed and Confused! It's a great movie about nothing with an awesome soundtrack. Kwiki posted the "Emporium" scene in another thread showing a ton of 70's EMs being played. Classic!
Too damn funny - I watched that scene last night -- there were a bunch in there.
seconds 20-25. (I only recognize two of eight or so in there)
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, but its a fictitional pin with Steve Zissou as the theme.
Toy Story...too funny. Kid in the arcade says "Mom...can I play Black Hole please?" Tried to upload the vid segment, but couldn't get it in here for some reason.
Watched The Last Detail this pst weekend with Randy Quaid and Jack Nicholson. There's a decent scene in a Boston arcade with lots of early 70s shooters and a few pinballs. Couldn't make out the games.
I know right? By the 2370s pinball in Star Trek is holographic. No more worry about cabinet fade, games breaking down or playfields ghosting (unless the holoprojectors malfunction). Anyways the episode was primarily set at the turn of the Millennium and focused on an ancestor of Capt. Janeway.
I'll bet Pat McMahon could get us a clearer shot, seeing as how he edited the show. Now...does anyone know Pat??
Quoted from Sparky:
The opening credits of Stephen King's The Stand tv mini series (sorry the screen shot is so bad, but I pulled it off youtube, and it was bad there, too).
movie: Thank God it s Friday
In the game room of the Disco... Gottlieb VOLLEY
and next to it ??? Bronco or Mustang ?? all I saw was a bit of the cabinet art
What's that machine in the pool room scene in Slap Shot 1977? It ends with "Iron" ? In middle/top of BG.
Just watched a documentary about Lynyrd Skynyrd on Axs called Gone With The Wind. When they are interviewing former band member Ed King you can see a lit-up Fireball right behind him, along with a jukebox.
You can see if briefly in this video at 1 min 54 sec.
probably already been posted but they are playing a Gottleib fun land wedge head in x-men first class
I was watching Star Trek Voyager over the weekend. Season 3, episodes 8 and 9 (Future's End I & II). The crew go through a time rift and are back in 1996. Ed Begley Jr is a rich tech-entrepreneur, and he has a Firepower in his office, shown several times during both episodes. In one scene he's actually playing the game while telling his henchman what to do. No sounds from the game other than the coils while he's playing. Also, there appears to be two different backglasses displayed in a frame and backlit as art (looks like a swapbox!). I can't tell the titles, but one is shown quite often. The other is only seen briefly. I don't have screen shots of these backglasses. These episodes are available to view on Netflix.
I think this is a Swedish game show. The translation is pretty rough but this part is called Super Flip and a contestant on the phone has to say flip to make the flippers flip. The pin that is being filmed must be backstage. Can anyone guess the repainted pin she is playing? It looks like a wide body. It reminds me of a Star Race but it's mirrored. The lady has a chance to win a Lights, Camera, Action. Check it out. Starts at 3:31 If you go to the next video the contestant play Stadium Events for the NES.
Saw this one the other day.
1948 "The Time of Your Life". James Cagney and William Bendix. There is a pinball machine in the center of the bar, one character in the movie is constantly playing it. Then he beats the game. All hell breaks loose, (I won't give it away) the back box is a movie prop.
Quoted from dmacy:
Firepower II on Wheeler Dealers US on the BMW 2002tii show. Was in the guys garage who sold Mike the car.
Just saw this on a re-run and thought I might be the first to notice.
Mike should have got the pinball as part of the deal for the car. It would be cool in Edd's workshop.
There are a few in Jaws 2 - one is a Four Queens, but I can't make out the rest. Maybe a Spanish Eyes?
