The Outsiders

Question: How did the church catch on fire? I know that in the scene before, Johnny drops a cigarette but he and Pony were also there the entire night. There is no way the blaze would have started once they left all them hours later. Also, what purpose did the children have being there? Why would they take a school bus to an old run down church? I get if they were going to just look but the adults let the children inside even though it was falling apart.

Question: In the scene where Johnny and Ponyboy are talking in the lot, Ponyboy goes over to sort out the fire. The camera zooms up on Johnny and you can hear voices echoing. Does anyone know what they're saying? I can't make them out.

Chosen answer: Johnny is recalling the argument he heard his parents having; the voices were meant to sound angry but not to be understood. Its to help us understand his horrid home life.

Question: What are the clothes and types of chucks Sodapop wears? I know they are plaid shirts but does anyone know the entire outfit when the boys are going to the rumble?

Chosen answer: Simple question, simple answer. Throughout the movie, and on the way to the rumble, he wears a (different colored) plaid shirt, white tee, blue jeans (on the day of the rumble he asks Darry "and where are my jeans?), and worn out tennis shoes.

Question: At the beginning of the movie when you see pony boy and johnny go up to Dallas you can here music playing in the background. When ponyboy asks "what d'you wanna do?" and dally goes "Nothin' legal, man." it gets turned up louder. Does anyone know the name of the song and the artist? I think it's called Gloria but I'm not sure.

Chosen answer: That song is called Gloria and the artist who performed it is Van Morrison. Great song!
