Watch The Warriors - Alternative Versions.
I was working in a movie theater when The Warriors first came out, and
remember well the flick and the hype surrounding it. Here's a few notes
to clear up some misconceptions that many other commentors seem to
The flick was NOT ever intended to be an accurate portrayal of New York
gang life, although there were some realistic elements. At the time it
was generally accepted that it took place in the future, although
nothing in the movie supports this. At best it can be considered an
urban fable that takes place in a sort-of-imaginary world. You know,
like Pulp Fiction (you think 90s LA gangsters dressed like that??).
Second, the film itself was not accused of inciting violence. Problem
was, it was a VERY popular film with gang members, who would show up in
force. Two rival gangs would show up at the same theater, and... you
can figure the rest out yourself. One guy was killed on the first
weekend the movie was playing in New York; after that, the distributor
hired off-duty police for security at every theater across the country
that showed the flick. In the small-town Midwest where I lived, this
served more as advertising hype than anything else.
Finally, it was widely known back in the day that The Warriors was
based on the ancient Greek nonfiction tale Anabasis, written around 370
BC by the Spartan general Xenophon (it's also published under the title
The Persian Expedition). In this classic tale, a battalion of 10,000
Spartan mercenaries join the Persian emperor Cyrus for a war in Asia
Minor (i.e. Turkey). Cyrus's army is defeated, the Spartan leaders are
captured, and the remaining force must make their way across country,
fighting various hostile tribes along the way, experiencing their own
internal power struggles, until they reach the safety of the sea. I'm
shocked that only one reviewer seemed to be familiar with this; in the
70s almost nobody talked about the movie without mentioning it.
Great flick, by the way, and it holds up extremely well over time. I'm
sure the remake will suck.
