Girolami is the director’s daughter and niece of Thomas Moore
(Enio Girolami) who played Ted Fisher in this movie and President Clark in the sequel.
Gregory was working in a shoe shop before this movie and was spotted in a gym.
He was a mere scrap of 17 when the film was made.
was not given for streets to be closed down for shooting. This is why, as
The Riders drive through “No Man’s Land” traffic can be seen proceeding in an orderly
fashion, cars are parked untouched and shops are open.
* The German
version of the film misses off the opening written explanation as to the state
of the Bronx. This makes the film completely different as it means the Bronx is simply
crime-ridden, not lawless.
* When framed by Hammer for the
murder of the giggling Tiger, Paul and Trash are together
and then Paul simply vanishes not to be seen again until the finale. This apparent vanishing act
can be explained by a lobby card and also a scene in the trailer where Paul runs outside to be
confronted by the Tigers and is held down while Witch kicks him in the face.
This was edited out before the film's release.
* While filming in New York in
1981, the entire crew were guests at the premiere of Arnold
Schwarzenegger's movie Conan The Barbarian. Enzo Castellari noted that Mark Gregory
was taller than Arnold.
* The commentary
track for the 2015 Blu Ray release of 1990: The Bronx Warriors has
Enzo Castellari and his son Andrea Girolami talking about this site and the passion of its
moderator Lance Manley for the two films and the ongoing Hunt For Trash.
