Old Chicago

About This Project

Old Chicago is a 1976 pinball game designed by Greg Kmiec and released by Bally Manufacturing Corporation (1931-1983) The center backglass figure with monogrammed pocket handkerchief is meant to be gangster John Dillinger. He was gunned down by federal agents in front of Chicago’s Biograph Theatre in 1934, betrayed by brothel madam Anna Sage (real name Ana Cumpanas), the legendary “Woman in Red”. Also on the backglass is a reference to the SMC Cartage Company garage at 2122 North Clark Street, where the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre occurred in 1929. When the garage was torn down in 1967, Christensen took some bricks from the site to display on his fireplace mantel.
