The Outsiders

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Over a half hour of the film was cut before release, due to movie executives fearing it to be too long and a chance of upsetting fans of the book, making the movie a mere 91 minutes. In 2005, a "director's cut" DVD of this film was released that restores much of this footage.
  • Movie Goof (boom mic visible): As Ponyboy, Johnny and Dally are walking to the movies, when you see them walking in front of the store, the boom mic (and its operator) are reflected on the windows (04:47 to 04:53 in 91 m.).
  • The reason for the actors laughing in the poster is because Leif Garrett was eating the food from the banquet and one of assistant directors yelled, "Hey, Leif. Don't dig in yet. Save that for the actors." Then Ralph Macchio chimed in, "Yeah Leif, save that for the actors." Then everyone broke out into laughter, and that was the poster.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): 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 01:05:37).
