The NFL Networks morning show today had a segment where they had pinball wizard by The Who playing and were comparing Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson. Had the typical bells and chimes going. That's the reason i looked upped while it was on in the background.

That's a Gottlieb Pro-Football. One of those interesting ones where you have two sets of reels -- a pinball score and a football score.

I was watching all in the family tv show and there was an older pin in the bar I couldn’t tell what game it was

#1707 4 years ago

AD ASTRA with Brad Pitt - very beginning right at about 3 min and 59 sec there is an Attack From Mars in the back ground. Couldn't get a screen grab of it....

Grey's Anatomy S14 E12 at the end of the show in the bar is a SURE SHOT
It is seen in other episodes but it was so far out of focus it was hard to ID.
At first I thought it was BANK SHOT.
But the half moon credit wheel proved it is SURE SHOT

Found this clip in a masters of the universe review on YouTube. Scorpion machine next to a Ms Pac Man arcade machine.

French-Belgian movie "Rien a declarer" from 2010
GOLDEN NUGGET Bingo-machine in a restaurant at the french-belgian border.
Backbox can be seen several times, but the whole machine is only visible in a very short camera-movement.
With actor and director Dany Boon.

I believe there is a Gottlieb "2001" (among others) on the subway platform in the 1979 cult classic movie "The Warriors". The Warriors run into a gang on roller skates while trying to get back to their home turf Coney Island.

Didn't get a screen (too tired on New Year's morning) but on epsiode 1.6 (I think) of "You're the Worst" on FX, the main characters are in a very nice looking pinball spot towards the end of the episode. They are playing Earthshaker and Junkyard during an extended scene.

Anyone name this machine. This old house. Nothing like a pinball in the kitchen. Love it!

Last night on TCM they showed the 1956 MGM movie starring Rock Hudson, Robert Stack and Lauren Bacall, "Written in the Wind" In two scenes at a local oil field Texas dive bar, there are 2 pinball machines. One is a fliiperless pin I think, cannot make out name, but other is CCoin. The Thing, and in one scene the Thing actual gets played with some close up shots of balls bouncing around. Sorry unable to get any screenshots to post..

Don’t ask why I was watching but Christina Aguilera’s video for “What a Girl Wants” has several pinballs and some videos in it too.
