“Warriors……come out to playeeeaye…….Warriors…..come out to playeeeee” – This phrase rings like a bell in the minds of the folks who saw the Paramount Pictures release “The Warriors” which came out on this day in 1979. Though its more common for me to extol the virtues of the music related or geek culture films more than something like this, I couldn’t let today go by without raising a glass to it since its remained a favorite Action/Thriller of a film. I’m not going to overdue my analysis of the plot since that all been done on its Official Wikipedia which will be linked at the close, and instead offer up some recollections that make this a special movie to me. After the poster I’ve lined out the premise and the casting so can you dig it? “Can You Dig It!!!!!!”
The Plot: Cyrus, leader of the Gramercy Riffs, the most powerful gang in New York City, calls a midnight summit of all the city’s gangs, requesting them to send nine unarmed delegates to Van Cortlandt Park. The Warriors, from Coney Island, attend the summit. Cyrus proposes to the assembled crowd a permanent citywide truce and alliance that would allow the gangs to control the city since they outnumber the police by three to one. Most of the gangs applaud his idea, but Luther, leader of the Rogues, shoots Cyrus dead. In the resulting chaos, Luther frames the Warriors’ leader Cleon for the murder, and Cleon is beaten down and most likely killed by the Riffs. Meanwhile, the other Warriors have escaped, unaware that they’ve been implicated in Cyrus’ murder. The Riffs put out a hit on the Warriors through a radio DJ. Swan, the Warriors’ “war chief”, takes charge of the group as they try to make it back home. (thanks Wiki) Continue reading Paramount Pictures “The Warriors” Still Running @ 40 Years (1979-2019)→
