early display of great talent
Most of the cast of The Outsiders went on to bigger and better things, except Leiff Garret. The Outsiders are a group of troublemaking greasers who all have strong bonds with each other. When C. Thomas Howell starts falling for Diane lane, the preppy gang starts messing with him. Soon there is a rumble and Ponyboy and Ralph Macchio are on the run. Has a great cast and a great director. The Outsiders is a good movie. ***

Quotes

Ponyboy: 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.


Goofs

When Dally is in the hospital on his bed, he asks for a pocket knife. In the first shot he is reaching with his left hand while his right hand is under the blanket (at 01:05:33 in 91 m.). In the next shot, he is reaching with his right hand (at around 1h 05 mins).


Crazy Credits

The 2005 special edition contains a re-edited cut of the film, a new soundtrack and 22 minutes of additional footage, including:

  • an extended opening scene where Ponyboy is attacked by the Socs when walking home from a Paul Newman movie. The principle Greasers are also introduced. Later, Ponyboy and Sodapop talk to each other in their bedroom.
  • a scene where Ponyboy asks some farmers how to reach Jay Mountain. He claims that he's playing "army" and "needs to report to base."
  • an alternate scene in the church where Ponyboy imagines that both Sodapop and Darry are present.
  • a short scene where Ponyboy splashes some water on his face outside the church while Johnny is out buying supplies.

  • A courtroom scene where Cherry, Randy, and Ponyboy all make statements. In the end, Ponyboy is acquitted and left in the custody of Darry.
  • A scene where Ponyboy runs into Cherry at school, but she walks away from him. Ponyboy's teacher also informs him that he is flunking, but allows him to write a paper on a personal experience in order to raise his grade.
  • A dinner scene where Sodapop becomes angry that he's always stuck in the middle between Ponyboy and Darry's tug of war and runs away. When they eventually catch him, they agree to stop fighting all the time.
