The Outsiders
The Outsiders mistake picture

Trivia: S.E. Hinton, the author of "The Outsiders", has a cameo in the scene where Johnny is lying on his stomach in hospital, playing the nurse tending to Dally who says "what did you do with your gown?"

Trivia: The scene where Dallas tips over in the chair at the drive-in was not scripted - this is a blooper they decided to leave in.

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.

Trivia: When C. Thomas Howell takes the first punch of the rumble scene, he was actually hit and spit up blood.

Trivia: Dallas' line, "You'll never get me alive!" was ad-libbed by Matt Dillon.

Continuity mistake: When Dally falls off of his chair in the drive-in movie theater, you can hear Ponyboy's laughter above them all. When the shot changes to Cherry, you can see Ponyboy with a serious face on in the background but you can still hear him laughing.
