Tilt (Shields) is the story of a young girl (Brenda Louise Davenport) who is a pinball machine wizard, hence the nickname 'TILT'. Because she does not get along with her parents Tilt is contemplating running away from home. Skipping school one day, Tilt decides to go to Mickey's Bar, where the owner helps set her up for a pinball game with an unaware gambler named Felix (Gary Mule Deer). As the easily hustled Felix loses, Neil (Ken Marshall) watches and is impressed with Tilt's talent. Neil tells Tilt that he is a hopeful country and western star and needs to raise money to make a demo tape of his songs. After hearing Neil's musical talent, she's impressed and agrees to help by traveling with him, raising cash with her pinball skill. When the two eventually end up back at Neil's former employer, "The Whale" (Charles Durning), Neil sets up a game between Tilt and him. However, Neil doesn't realize Tilt has caught on to his lies and manipulation, and his plans are not going to go as hoped.
With hints of liberated sexuality at its edges (in the opening scene, "Tilt" the teenage pinball wizard played by Shields hitches a ride with a trucker and scares him away by suggesting they have an orgy with his wife!), the film Tilt is still very chaste and is really a family picture and one all ages are sure enjoy!
