WALTER HILL ON ASSIGNMENT
Double Feature! Director Walter Hill In Person!
THE WARRIORS / STREETS OF FIRE

Director Walter Hill discusses his latest film, THE ASSIGNMENT, in a new interview here.

Discussion between films with director Walter Hill, moderated by Jim Hemphill.
THE WARRIORS
1979, Paramount, 93 min, USA, Dir: Walter Hill

One of director Walter Hill’s finest films assumes a dark, comic book style, following the Coney Island Warriors as they run for their lives after being fingered for the murder of a peacemaking gang leader. The gangbangers brave a gauntlet of ghetto booby traps, unseen marauders, unsympathetic cops and rabid, teen NYC wolfpacks as they try to reach safe home turf. Tough-talking Michael Beck, James Remar and Deborah Van Valkenburgh lead a snarling young cast.


STREETS OF FIRE
1984, Universal, 94 min, USA, Dir: Walter Hill

One of the great guilty pleasures of the 1980s, director Walter Hill’s spectacular, rock & roll-fueled pulp classic roars at you like a souped-up roadster with the radio going full blast. B-movie god Michael Paré stars as an enigmatic loner who comes back to town to save former gal-pal Diane Lane from the clutches of sinister biker chieftain Willem Dafoe (sporting one of the wickedest hair-dos known to mankind.) Outtasight, baby!
