Here is The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day! Can you dig it? Caaannnn yooouuuu diiggg ittt?!?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! Today’s picture isn’t a professional studio still. Hell, The Warriors ain’t exactly a profession studio kind of movie, so it feels right that we have a frozen moment from the making of that film that feels just like the movie itself. Consider how this photo differs from some of the bigger studio pictures I’ve featured here. They’re using all natural light and there’s all of 6 people in this shot, including Michael Beck. Guerilla filmmaking. Unless, of course, the rest of the crew is hiding behind the photographer, but I’d like to imagine it was a small hodge-podge grouping of people making this film the cult classic it is today. If you’re not familiar with The Warriors fix that immediately! Now, the only version available on Blu-Ray is Walter Hill’s “Ultimate Director’s Cut” which features some really crappy animated transitions. Here’s hoping the original theatrical cut is available on some future release, but it’s better to have most of this awesome movie in high def than to not have any of it, I guess. A reader named Joe sent me this and a few others. I hate to tip my hand as I’ll probably be using a few more of these during the life of the column, but Joe found ‘em at a Warriors Fansite which has a ton of BTS pics from this flick. Enjoy and click for a slightly bigger version!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes can only be attributable to human error. -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    This is a movie...

    by ConfusedPanda

    ...that a lot of younger movie geeks simply haven't seen, and one day they will discover its incredible badass-ness. It's the perfect movie to watch for the first time with others. It's best watched with a group of guys. If you're in college and haven't seen this, go buy the DVD (the theatrical cut - the director's cut with animated transitions is unnecessary; there's only one added effect that is worth a damn). Watch it. Watch it soon.

    by Skyway Moaters

    It was in perpetual rotation on HBO Cinemax & Showtime circa 1979 - 1984 (?) Independent film making at it's very finest. Whatever happened to Walter Hill?! <p> Do you geeks know that the source novel for this film by Sol Yuric was based upon the writings of the Greek historian Xenophon? Specifically: "Anabasis"? <p> Hmm... I wonder, how is the Greek root-word "Xeno" (as in: Xenophobe) related to Xenophon's name? Got to look that up! <p> Quick! who can name all the gangs that The Warriors had to fight/face during their *long* journey back to Coney? No fair to Wiki!

  • Sept. 5, 2010, 2:57 p.m. CST


    by loafroaster

    It's the Anabasis, retold in a contemporary setting; a pretty simple few-vs-many story. What's nonsense about it?

    that would be every other bloated windbag on this retarded website. you fuckers shit all over kick-ass and scott pilgrim, two great, fun films that were gift-wrapped for our demographic. meanwhile, you're pining away for these rotten guilty pleasures from your childhood. that's why a cynical piece of garbage like the expendables reaches #1 at the box office: because you guys have your heads jammed square up your asses. call me whatever you want, but until someone explains why a bunch of faggots dancing around fighting people in baseball uniforms is a great movie, you take a big L.

    by Skyway Moaters

    It's a geek fantasy you retard! You a gamer? Hmm? How many video game "plots" have you seen that don't owe something to "Anabasis"? Or are you, as someone else accused: An Ivory Merchant snob? Never heard of "Anabasis" or Xenophon? Why am I not surprised? Get an education and watch a few Walter Hill films. <p> Dick.

    by rafael_herschel

    It’s a movie about a group of young people fighting a hostile world to get home. And ‘home’ isn’t that great either. It’s not just a movie about guys in silly uniforms fighting each other with baseball bats. I really like the scene in the train were the Warriors meet some middleclass kids, a real ‘Remains of the Day’ like moment.

    This is the only feature on AICN that has consistently positive feedback in the talkbacks. If you truly think this column is a waste of time, then don't click on it. Everyone loves this feature, and it belongs on this site like few others. Filmgeeks are the reason that studios put special features on dvd's.

    It seems there's people who can't understand the concept that there are good movies made before the decade they were born. And it's not just some shit from the Gen-Ys born in the 1990s, this shit also happened to people from my generation born in the 70s, and also those born in the 80s. Their loss, really. Sucks to be them.

    by AsimovLives

    THE WARRIORS was respect and admired the day when it was released, not just by audiences but also many many, the majority of the critics. 300 was, at best, accepted as a guilty pleasure, as in, evne those who praised it admit it's a dumb nonsense movie. There's no way to compare THE WARRIORS to 300. The first is a proper movie, the second is a disturbing picture of the mind of a dumb hack that should be locked up in an asylum.

    ... Crap name BTW. <p> I defy you to identify a single basic story arc, that the Greeks, and/or the Hindu Indians didn't explore thousands of years before what's considered "modern civilization" came to pass. Heck, the Sumerians: ("Gilgamesh" anyone?), wrote 70% of it, in one form or another, 2600 or so years before the Greeks or the Indians. Ever heard of the "Upanishads"? <p> In the meantime, while you all rush off to Wikipedia, what about "The Tubes"?

    One thing The Warriors does that msot Merchant/Ivory films don't is ENTERTAIN!!!! Sweet jesus they have made some of the dullest movies in history. " Hello! I'm english!" " Oh so am I, how convenient!" thats pretty much the average dialogue sequence. Not that ALL their movies are boring, but entertaining?.... not so much. Ya know, not all of us here only like geek movies. I've watched and enjoyed my fair share of snobby arthouse fare, that doesn't mean i can't appreciate fun, entertaining movies. Just because they aren't snobbish, doesn't mean they aren't good. It's all about intent. Was The Warriors made to win critical acclaim and teach us all a little bit more about ourselves and/or others? Nope. Was it made so as to enlighten us to the plight of a group of people, or the horrors of an evil Govt ? Nope. Was it made because they wanted a fun, kick-ass piece of genre awesomeness? I would say yes and that they succeeded.

    by BobbyMcPrescott

    The game is as deserved of praise as the original. They waited over 20 years and brought back the original cast to tell a perfectly coherent backstory leading up to the events of the film, and then following through all the way up to a few minutes AFTER the film... teehee. Rockstar is awesome, but the alternate reality the Warriors exist in is the real star.

    This is a terrible movie. There's nothing to it, not in a B-Movie/Cult way, not in a general way... it's just somewhat obscure, so people think they have to like it to prove their movie cred. There is no other acceptable explanation. Thank you.

    one of the best video games ever

    by Star Hump

    as well as movies, too. Love that flick. Great characters, great atmosphere. Wonderful twist on an ancient story.<p> I had a blast playing the Rockstar game. It's brutal. A huper-violent fighting game with no guns and all the charcters from the film - and more! Great Coney Island and NYC settings. You could tell the Rockstar guys loved the movie as much as we did. They did an amazing job.

    by Skyway Moaters

    Pathetic fucking nick BTW. But I can assure you that "The Warriors" had ALL KINDS OF CRED, when it was released, critical and geek alike. Box office? Barely a blip, but when has that ever been a legitimate yardstick for the quality of a film except among douches such as yourself? <p> To quote Louis Black (who just turned 64; for all you age discriminatory troglodyts): "All you 20 somethings? Do your fuckin' job! Look good, get lots of pussy, get drunk, have fun: AND SHUT THE FUCK UP. You don't have the sense, life experience, or self awareness to realize that your opinion about ANYTHING is utter horseshit... or that someone else already did it better than you".

    ... but that song, while popular is a rather poor representation of what The Tubes are really about. It came during their "record company pressure to make radio hits (which didn't last long) 'phase'. It's blatently misrepresentative of the crazy motherfucking asshole genoius of the majority of their body of work. Do a YouTube search and pay attention to "White Punks on Dope" "Mr. Hate" "Mondo Bondage" and their outrageous live performances. Fee Waybill is the greatest "front man" to ever take the stage, BAR NONE. Better than Jagger, Daltrey, Morrison, Tyler, Mercury, et al. I'm talking, Bowie, Iggy, Peter Gabriel territory....

    by Skyway Moaters

    Walter Hiil was the man. "The Long Riders" is the best, an most historically "Jesse James" film ever made. Extremely daring in it's time: Accurate period costumes, accurate Missouri settings, accurate period music and the genius casting of real life brothers of actors that could actually act to play the 4 sets of brothers that figure into the historical tale. The "Great Minnesota Raid" sequence is in Sam Peckinpah territory...

    Were the Carradines great or what?! What about the Quaids? I really like how slimy Dennis is, and how he ultimately tells the law to FUCK OFF. Randy was pert near perfect IMO. Ironically, while Stacey gave his usual "consumate proffesional performance", I thought James as Jesse was the weakest performance in the show. Thoughts? I mean it worked 'but', and ; historically Jesse was a pretty unemotional cold blooded bastard, "the" leader and all that... I don't know. What do you think?

    Ya, james' jesse was a little bit too psychotic for my tastes, but its a minor gripe in an otherwise flawlessly cast film. He redeems the character somewhat in the walk with his fiance where he talks about starting a family, but is ultimately overshadowed by stacey's frank, and the terrific character work he did. The quaids as the millers was inspired casting though, and even the guests do a good job, though probably the weakest of the sets of brothers(though they didn't have as much to work with). The Carradines as the youngers though, are magnificent, especially david who's chemistry with reed practically jumps off the screen. A truly sublime modern western.

It will take a while because he's a stubborn pugilistic asswipe cretin. But eventually, if his desperate misguided pleas for sublimated ego strokes aren't aswered he will lose interest and move on. I can't imagine to 'where' as hardly any other internet forum has such ridiculously lax mediation protocols as AICN. <p> Hopefully he'll just hang himself in a closet somewhere he can't hurt others when he inevetibly loses it over not getting his attention fix from these boards anymore. <p> That's my HOPE, but in reality I have no doubt that he will eventually go postal and shoot up a bunch of library patrons somwhere or somthing along those lines. BUT, this CANNOT go on. He's fucking up every thread on the site. We may end up being responsible for a deranged killing spree, but his oppression of AICN TBs has to end. <p> COVENTRY!

Since there was no movie sequel to the warriors, maybe the warriors frachise could continue in game form - with rockstars writers, it could result in some very cool stuff. Imagine the kind of crazy gangs the warriors could go up against if their exploits continued on into the 80s- Break dancing gangs, gangs based on wall street yuppies, flock of seagull inspired gangs, crime lords modelled after boy george...the potentials there, man.

    by Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidentally Saves The World

    That's the kind of mentality that's responsibility for the deluge of shit coming from hollywood these days, and for suggesting the idea you've proven yourself a moron with shit taste in films, so good work. God these talkbacks have really gone down the shittier at an alarming fucking rate lately. Young persons nowadays can't handle any kind of stylization. Everything's got to be a gritty "epic" photo realistic shit documentary that uses the title of an old movie or tv show. I blame videogames for brainwashing all the kids into this kind of thinking. And the people who think Warriors is cartoonish and unrealistic, need to check out the documentary that inspired the warriors in the first place, see what 70s new york gangs were like before everyone carried guns and shot each other for nothing. Hell if I can remember the name of it though.

    90% of the time I'm defending a film to some ignorant troll in these talkbacks. But I think THE WARRIORS sucks. I understand why a lot of geeks love it, it has a lot of cool elements, and it should be awesome. A lot of the love for Walter Hill is based on elements he brings to his films like violence and conflict, but he isn't particularly talented. Not a hack nor a visionary. And a lot of the gangs were ridiculous! WESTSIDE STORY like in how silly they came off.

    The film was supposed to be like a greek comic book

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    The gangs weren't supposed to seem real. Like the Orphans. Or even the furies, obviously influenced by Kiss. You're not going to see gangs like this. And Cyrus was like a Messiah, so the film had fantastical elements. But the cool thing about it was that the backdrop and the streets they were on were real.

    The man who made Southern Comfort, 48 hrs

    by alan_poon

    The Warriors, The Long Riders, Extreme Prejudice isn't talented?

    Walter hill not talented

    I guarantee you have not seen the long riders. If you have, than i feel sorry for you.

    Walter Hill is the fucking man...

    by NomoredirtyjokespleaseweareYanks

    Red Heat, 48 hrs, The Long Riders, Last Man Standing, Trespass... Hell I'll even watch Another 48 hrs and Wild Bill over any Bay hack-fest.

  • Sept. 6, 2010, 11:55 a.m. CST

    First off, I like the movie a lot...but...

    by vettebro

    Think about this. The Warrior's looked like a bunch of San Francisco gays. Their look made other gangs want to beat the shit out of them. Anyone agree?

  • Sept. 6, 2010, 12:06 p.m. CST

    vettebro, they were modeled after Native American warriors

    I love the hell out of this movie . . .

    by Nice Marmot

    . . . I can watch it any time and consider it so GOOD its GOOD. But I sure as hell wouldn't expect a youngster just now seeing it for the first time to like it. Wouldn't recommend it to them at all. The makeup, the one-liners, the roller skates, etc . . . you either caught the boat early or missed it entirely.

    by IKilledSuperman

    You misunderstood...ok, my bad, I used the wrong term. Warriors is trash (IMHO) for all the reasons I wrote above and several more. It´s just a dumb flick that doesn´t even deliver on the basic genre stuff like violence and grittyness you´d expect from something like that. And don´t get me wrong, I like a lot of Walter Hills later movies. Evil Dead and Escape from NY aren´t trash, they are excellent low-budget movies. In fact (again IMO) ED should be studied by every film student.

    Some people have a serious case of the not-gays

    by Dead_Kate_Moss

    Also they have no idea what San Francisco gays look like - the same as other gays, they look straight as fuck. No way would they be dressing like The Warriors, which is more like the 70s Aerosmith/Stones rock star look.

  • Sept. 6, 2010, 12:23 p.m. CST

    Also, didn't Walter Hill . . .

    by Nice Marmot

    . . . also direct a bunch of Dead Wood epidsodes? The guy is a bad ass. Another one that I LOVE that I'm sure a bunch would hate on is Streets of Fire. Like The Warriors, its another that is set in our world, yet somehow isn't. Gotta love Willem Dafoe in those latex overalls.

    QUINT!! A question for you!!

    by Bluto425

    I haven't seen the movie in a long time, but why exactly did Walter Hill put in those crappy animated transitions? Did he ever say why? Personally, I wish he would have just left them out, but was curious if you knew why he felt the need to add them.

    Crappy Transitions

    by Katet19

    He put them in because when he originally made the film he wanted them there but didn;'t have the budget. He was a huge comic book fan and wanted the transitions to be like comic spalsh pages.

    Streets of Fire...

    Love 70s Dirty New York flicks....

    by DougMcKenzie

    Warriors, Serpico, Prince of the City. I love to see that world which no longer exists... that period when the yuppies and trendies abandoned NY, en masse, for LA and San Franciso (the vogue cities of the 70s). Leaving NY so broke and empty that corruption and crime if painted on the walls and spread all over the streets. I remember Michael Beck saying," The Warriors opened a lot of doors for me in Hollywood, which Xanadu promptly slammed shut!" Ouch! At least he got to make Megaforce with Barry Bostwick as a consolation!

  • Sept. 6, 2010, 6:10 p.m. CST

    alienindisguise likes..

    by IKilledSuperman think about black peoples wet dreams and hopes they´re about shit and sucking. He wants a black person, preferably of his own gender, to go down on him and then shit in his mouth. alienindisguise is pretty nasty, huh?

  • Sept. 6, 2010, 6:26 p.m. CST

    Those 70s city flicks just felt alive didn't they?

    by leo54304

    Even the remake of Invasion of Body Snatchers, Dirty Harry, Death Wish all made you feel the vibe of the city.<br> <br> Ever walk down Vegas after midnight on the strip? Such a rush with all the people, sights, sounds. Just as if the city itself was alive. Gotta do it once in your life.

  • Sept. 6, 2010, 7:16 p.m. CST

    Coney Island still retains that feeling....

    by Jehovahs_Witness

    ...that you get from watching it in movies like The Warriors or Remo Williams, thanks largely to the existence of the Wonder Wheel, the Cyclone, and the community of local freaks who frequent the boardwalk and the beach...especially in the winter, when just the diehard Coney fans are there.

    Just watched this again...Great movie, even the DC.

    by TedKordLives

    I don't mind the comic book-y transitions at all-they're in keeping with Hill's vision of the film. But if only they could have been done by actual '70s comic book artists: Gene Colan comes to mind...

  • Sept. 6, 2010, 8:17 p.m. CST

    Not saying Walter Hill is UNtalented

    by one9deuce

    Just more workmanlike than visionary is all I'm saying. He has made at least one great film which is 48 Hours, I haven't seen THE LONGRIDERS yet but I will rectify that immediately. My point is that if he had directed ALIEN instead of Ridley Scott it wouldn't be the masterpiece it is.

    by CreationistTechnophobicManiacs

    It's about Larry Levinson who ran Plato's Retreat, a popular swingers club in New York that ran from 77 to 85 until Mayor Koch used the fag plague (otherwise known as AIDS) as an excuse to shut it down. I wish I could have lived in New York of the 70's, when the city seemed at its most depraved, decrepit and glorious.

    Watched it again tonight

    by Inexplicable_Nuclear_Balls

    First time I've seen it in many years. It's not the greatest, most awesome movie ever, but it's definitely a good one. I was expecting the rose-colored glasses of childhood would have clouded my memories into thinking it was something it wasn't... I was pleasantly surprised it didn't feel cheesy, and overall it still holds up today.<p> And props to England's Finest for the Poppies reference...<p? We dig Marvel and DC<p> We dig Run DMC<p> We dig Renegade Soundwave and AC/DC

    Warriors is a classic midnite movie

    by deelzbub

    Not s'psed to be effin Raging Bull or Citizen Kane. Still think it's a great action/suspense movie.<P> Helped a friend paint his face as a Baseball Furie for Halloween back in '86. Great costume.

  • Sept. 7, 2010, 10:46 a.m. CST

    Southern Comfort rules, btw
