The drive-in played kids movies first, and then the “grown up” movie would show. From the backseat of the car, while I pretended to sleep, I caught glimpses of a movie I wasn’t supposed to see. This tale of a gang, fighting their way back home astonished me. In future years, it became a film I could not turn off once it began. “The Warriors” is certainly a movie of it’s time. Set in New York, and colorfully told, it revisits the Greek narrative of “soldiers” battling just to see the sun rise, on their own turf.
We once again welcome the vibrant Chuck Oney. As old live television buddies, we give a light-hearted look at a film that didn’t, and won’t ever, win any awards. However, “The Warriors”, is a guilty pleasure Chuck and I share. We also debut our new “Harker Segment”, named after Thomas P. Harker, aka “The Ukulele Man”.
