I received this from Roger last night, if anyone can help, please message me or email [email protected]

"Kevin
I have a question for you-- I just had a call with Meredith and Austin as they are going through final edits of the movie with a very tight timeline they have to meet, but also a desire, if at all possible, to maybe get some pick up footage.

So, within a reasonable distance in the Washington DC area--do you know anyone who might have either/both a Bank Shot and a Cowpoke who would be willing to have the brothers come by with their camera and take some random shots of the game?"

Maybe Meredith and Austin can somehow swing by this estate sale and take some pictures they need for the movie.
The game looks nice too.

I have one at the Delaware Pinball Collective in very good shape. Let me know.

What is the significance between those titles and Roger? I sold a Bank Shot locally if they're near Chicago

I assume these were the 2 machines he played in court in May 1976 to overturn the ban on pinball in NY. I assume the movie is about this glorious day.

"Which brings us back to the May morning in 1976 with Mr. Sharpe waiting patiently to enter the courtroom. He had been hired by the Music & Amusement Association (MAA, for short) to be their star witness in their pursuit to overturn the ban on pinball in New York City. Roger Sharpe, besides being a writer on the subject matter, was also a superb player himself, widely considered to be the best in country. He had been provided with two machines to prove his case, with one being a backup in the event that the first machine broke. While the MAA had been granted this hearing due to one committee member’s sponsored bill to overturn the ban, the other committee members were known to be against lifting the ban on pinball. The the MAA, the bill, and Mr. Sharpe were underdogs in this fight."

This has been handled and arrangements are in place for Meredith and Austin to come to the Delaware Pinball Collective this weekend to shoot film.
