Long before James Remar was offering parental advice to his serial killing son in the hit series Dexter, he was flying colors as a member of the titular Coney Island gang in Walter Hill’s 1979 cult classic The Warriors. But where did Remar’s screen-used vest from the flick go? Collection Complete, the Gemr-produced docu-series we’ve previously featured, has tracked it down!
Now in its third season, Collection Complete’s latest episode takes a look at the challenges of collecting and authenticating film props with returning guest, filmmaker and collector Sean Clark (Horrors Hallowed Grounds) and actor James Remar, who presents to Clark his own screen-used vest from director Walter Hill’s seminal film.
Check it out here.
A deep dive into his fascination with the 1979 cult classic, the episode further delves into Clark’s storied journey to obtain a screen-used vest from the production, which first began with Clark being sold an expensive fake from a trusted acquaintance, to later being happily bestowed Remar’s own screen-used vest and belt, which his character of “Ajax” wore in the film.
The series’ twentieth episode (future installments are set to showcase other items in Clark’s collection, including a screen-used Hellraiser box, rare KISS items and The Resonator prop from 1986’s From Beyond), past episodes of Collection Complete have ventured into the personal collections of filmmakers Mike Mendez of Tales of Halloween fame and designer, artist and pinup Micheline Pitt, among others.
