‘The Warriors’ press book [pdf] is a fascinating read since it contains information on the story, movie production, background information on the cast & characters, crew and the novel upon which the movie is based. There are also a few additional sheets featuring specific insights about the movie production including an interview with Film Bulletin about bringing the movie to life, information on how the cast stayed fit, and information on how the movie was shot.
Here, you can download the original script for educational purposes. This was last edited in 1978 and contains a lot of stuff that never made it into the movie. It is also important to note that this script does not take into account the departure of Thomas G. Waites (The Fox) during filming which is why he has such a big part in the script.
