Notes: Optional Wood or Steel stand was available at additional cost. "Five Star Final" was a Hollywood movie from 1931, based on a play by Louis Weitzenkorn. It was nominated for Best Picture. Even so, Michael Gottlieb stated at Chicago Expo 2012 that his grandfather (David Gottlieb) chose the name because he thought it would be the last game he'd ever make. No further explanation was given. One of the games pictured in this listing shows the reverse side of its playfield panels, revealing a different playfield design from some unknown game. Close inspection of this design shows some of the intended gobble holes still have the unpunched filler in them. This suggests a leftover or unused playfield was cut into sections for reuse here. Perhaps the unknown game never went into production.
