The rivalry between two gangs, the poor Greasers and the rich Socs, only heats up when one gang member kills a member of the other.
After C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, Emilio Estevez, Darren Dalton and William Smith filmed this movie, the same group teamed up again the next year with Estevez's brother Charlie Sheen in Red Dawn.
When I stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman, and a ride home.
When Dally, Johnny and Ponyboy are watching the movie at the drive in, Ponyboy starts laughing, but in the next shot we see Ponyboy in the background not laughing while the audio track of his laughing is still continuing (at 07:23 to 07:25 in 91 m.).
Closing dedication: This film is dedicated to the people who first suggested that it be made... Librarian Jo Ellen Misakian and the students of the Lone Star School in Fresno, California.
