Rock ‘n’ Roll High School (USA, 1979)

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School (USA, 1979). Directors: Allan Arkush, Joe Dante (uncredited). Stars: The Ramones, P.J. Soles, Vincent Van Patten, Clint Howard...

This movie is mandatory viewing for Ramones fans. It’s silly, but it’s fun, and the Ramones play some classic tunes live.

In a backstage scene, the group brings in a stack of pizzas and Dee Dee gives Riff Randell a slice of pizza which she keeps as a souvenir.

In the room is an Op-Pop-Pop (Bally, 1969) pinball machine with the backglass painted over. On the left is a 1970s Pass electro-mechanical driving game made by Taito.


Flyer for original machine...

No pizza for you, Joey...
