        Those photos were a photo op for a magazine. In the universe of 'The Warriors' that gang would be The Orphans. Real gangs with real territory who engaged in real violence were not mixed race. That's a historical fact. Guarantee the kids in those photos didn't go walking around presenting themselves as a gang once the photographer left.

      > Was NYC really like in The Warriors, back in the 70s?

      56 year old here, and American cities in the 1970s were absolute shitholes of scum and villainy due to the Democrat's soft-on-crime platform combined with the "Great Society" cradle-to-grave welfare programs. Detroit for example went to shit within just a couple of years after the election of Mayor Coleman Young in 1973, I remember going to the enclave city of Hamtramck with my parents and staring in wonder at all the houses that were literally leaning over and falling to pieces.

      There's a reason flicks like The Warriors, Dirty Harry and the Death Wish series were so popular; they pretty accurately reflected what urban areas were like back then.

      I can't believe how long Marion Barry was mayor of DC, what a fricking dipshit. And those buttholes want voting representation in national congress?

      The author of the novel was disappointed about that as well. It actually takes something away from the setting. Race was a big component of what was going on with these gangs.
      There were multiracial gangs but it was very specific to the neighborhoods people were from, so you might see Puerto Ricans and blacks together, combinations like that.
      The novel is quite interesting if anyone is curious. It's a turned up to 11 depiction of reality, while the film took on this cartoony kind of vibe. It works for the film I'll say, but the book is really raw and cool in it's own way.

    When The Warriors was released, it caused a shitstorm. Every gang infested city had issues during the screenings to the point that the producers pulled the film from wide release to prevent violence. The film didn't really take off until it was used by local theaters as a midnight movie, where it became a cult film, and eventually made its money back, and started to profit.

        This. The film makers were than demonized for "encouraging violence" from the ~~*press*~~ and made the decision to pull it from theaters at an initial loss. It wasn't until local theaters started running past run films at midnight showings that The Warriors became a cult classic and eventually made its money back. Same thing happened to The Rocky Horror Picture Show....minus the gang violence, of course.

    The actor that played Fox was supposed to be the lead Warrior, but the actor was such a pain in the ass to work with, had zero chemistry with the femal love interest, that his character was replaced as the lead by the Swan character. The actor was so pissed he left the production and demanded that his name wasn't included in the credits, and that's why we have the scene of Fox getting killed by the cops in the subway.
