Factual error: The trains in this movie set in 1965 are from Burlington Northern and the St Louis and San Francisco Railway (Frisco). Burlington Northern was not around until 1970.
Ponyboy: Nature's first green is gold, / Her hardest hue to hold. / Her early leaf's a flower, / But only so an hour. / Then leaf subsides to leaf, / So Eden sank to grief. / So dawn goes down to day, / Nothing gold can stay.
Johnny: Where did you learn that? That's what I meant.
Ponyboy: Robert Frost wrote it. I always remembered it because I never quite knew what he meant.
Trivia: When Dally, Ponyboy and Johnny are in the car in the Dairy Queen parking lot, a little girl comes up to them and asks for some change. That is a young Sofia Coppola, daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, who is now also a notable movie director.
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.
