Did you ever notice

on the right side of the tombstone that Rembrandt paints the "W"it says THE BEST.
Is that coincidence or does it hearken to the beach scene at the end of the movie where Swan says that?

just wondering.............

Yeah that, and other things like it, are listed elsewhere on this site. I'd say delebrate. One of those things put in to bring a smile to people's faces when they notice it.

Well if know this The Warriors was heating some gangs and had to take their vests off straight after filming just in case there were gang members around and I read that the graveyard scene is actually right on a gangs turf and the only reason they could shoot there was because it was fenced so I think that it was a gang.

yes this was discussed before, some felt it was a hidden or subliminal message by Walter Hill. It is very hard to observe that scene, you have to have a good eye for it.

Well I think that places like that are full of marks because everyone can reach the spot (no fences etc.) and put own sign.

Wow, I never noticed this, who knows.  Sometimes people believe in signs that can predict the outcome of ones fate.  I mean just like how people envision something in a dream that is confusion.  You try to put all the symbols toghether and metaphoricle realize that it means somethings as your proceed further into your life.  At the moment it may not mean anything to you, but further up the road the symbols bcome clear, and all the pieces connect into answers.

I think it was just there.  Perhaps it was placed there but I doubt it.
