In getting myself hyped for my upcoming trip to the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, I picked up this little documentary, Special When Lit.
It's pretty rad and well done, it covers the whole history of pinball up to the modern day. It talks about the Las Vegas Pinball Museum, the Paris Pinball Museum, the tournament scene and PAPA. Lots of interviews with manufacturers and collectors.
I must say, having grown up in the 80's, I didn't fully realize how big pinball was in the 70's. This film gives a good view of that era.
Here's some pics of the DVD that arrived from London a mere four days after I ordered it!
