What is it about? Director Walter Hill has publicly stated that he hates the television footage. In fact none of the TV footage was even placed as an extra on the newer dir's cut dvd edition. My goal was to restore every bit of extra footage that appears in the television version back into the superior first edition (not that BS dirs cut) of the film. I placed the extra footage in the film exactly to where it was in the TV version. No rearranging of scenes of any kind (except for the bathroom scene which was a different edit on the TV version).

original film name: The warriors
new film name : The warriors: TV composite
Film studio name : Paramount
edit crew name : Tranzor
Date Original Film Was Released: 1979 (2000, dvd)
Date Edit Was Released : 2001 ver1.0, ver 1.1 2007
Original Runtime: 93 mins
New Runtime: 100mins (107mins, TV footage was time compressed)

CUTS/ADDS: about 10 seconds (however this missing 10 appears as an extra on my disc)

Extras: TV footage in its full pan and scan glory for die-hards, original edit of the bathroom scene (roller skating gang)

Conceptual improvements/advancements of edit over original:

* Adds a bit more depth to the film. This also includes some key info such as how Swan finds out his gang is wanted by the Riffs, etc.


DVD breakdown info:

* TV footage (matted) and film are presented in it's 1:85:1 aspect ratio, true 16x9 anamorphic widescreen pic. NTSC format. 38 chapter stops (includes info on what chapters have TV footage). AC3 sound

persons involved 1

TIME: ehh give or take a few days


Maybe downloadable from Fanedit.info

Ok, I gotta ask, why does Tranzor say "the superior first edition (not that BS dirs cut) of the film"? Aside from the director stating that he doesn't like the TV footage, what's the problem with director's cut? I have yet to watch the official disc or the edit, so I wanted to understand what I should look for in each version.

Good cut, would be nice if they released this instead of that comic book crap we got in the DC.

I didn't think it added much to th story but as a non US resident I would have missed out on this version inthe 80's. it was nice to watch just bearing that in mind.
