Trivia

Director Francis Ford Coppola became aware of Emilio Estevez when he accompanied his dad Martin Sheen to the filming of Apocalypse Now (1979). He had a small role as a messenger boy that was cut. Coppola remembered Estevez and gave him a bigger role in this film.


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

The story is set in 1965, yet it shows many modern (as of filming in 1983) pieces of medical equipment, such as disposal plastic nasal cannula, modern plastic IV tubing and cut offs, etc. Also most hospitals in the 1960s had open wards with many patients cordoned off by curtains, instead of private rooms as depicted in the movie.


Crazy Credits

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.


Alternate Versions

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 scene in the church where Ponyboy and Johnny become emotional over the events of the past 24 hours.
  • extended reading of "Gone With the Wind" in the church.
  • a short scene where Ponyboy finds Tim sitting on his couch in the morning.
  • a small extension to Ponyboy and Two-Bit at the hospital where a doctor allows them access to Johnny's room after being denied entrance by a nurse.
  • a short scene where Two-Bit and Ponyboy encounter Johnny's mother at the hospital.
  • Following the death of Dally, Darry lashes out at the cops while Ponyboy faints. Later, we see Sodapop and Darry caring for him in bed while Ponyboy asks if someone is sick, not realizing that he is.
  • 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.
