‘The Warriors’: 1979 gang movie still popular

Something that can only (and perhaps inexplicably) be described as "movie magic" began on Feb. 9, 1979. That's when a silly, cartoonish but strangely compelling film - about a street gang trying to go from one end of New York City to another while being chased by rival gangs - hit theater screens. Somehow, it opened to box-office success and became an instant cult classic.

Twenty-nine years later, Walter Hill's "The Warriors" is still being chased by art-house aficionados around the world.
