Book Vs Movie "The Warriors"

  Book Vs Movie  The Warriors (Yes, the Cult Classic Film is Based on a Book!) The Margos are picking out our costumes for this special episode devoted to the cult classic The Warriors (yes, it was based on a book by Sol Yurick.) The movie, directed by Walter Hill, was a hit when it was released in 1979, but the glory of that was marred by real-life gang violence at the time which caused the movie studios to cease advertising the film. It was a staple of syndicated television throughout the 80s and is considered a modern classic and one of the earliest films to bring a comic book sensibility to urban decay.  Yurick wrote the original story in 1965 and based it on his experience working for the welfare department in New York City after graduating college in the 1940s. He became fascinated by the teenagers he met and how they navigated living in a big city. (At the time, the term “juvenile delinquent” was used to describe young people who got into trouble.) The basis for the story is a fictional account of gang life and the Greek story Anabasis.  In the mid-1970s, producer Lawrence Gordon bought the rights to the book and Paramount Pictures became the home of the film adaptation.  There are several differences between the book and film including the names and costumes of the multitude of gangs and its depiction of women.  So between the book and the movie, which did we like better?
