Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Ponyboy has a scab on his neck, that is visible in quite a few scenes, that was the result of being cut by a Soc in the original opening where Ponyboy is jumped by Socs after leaving a movie theater.
  • The non-profit organization producer/performer Anthony Begonia volunteers with was used as a catering home base on several occasions for the film.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): After the boys come over for breakfast near the end of the movie, Ponyboy goes out on the porch. When he goes out (at 55:13 in 91 m.) there is a rip in the screen in door. When he comes back in the rip is gone (at 55:26). This is because the screen is pulled away from the frame near the door handle which can be seen when the door is open (55:13), but not when the door is closed (55:26).
  • The film is based on a book that is very popular among junior high and high school students. A school class was actually responsible for Francis Ford Coppola making this film. A class voted Coppola the director they would most like to see direct a film of the book. The school sent a letter and a copy of the book to Coppola. Coppola read the book and the letter. He was so moved, he made both this film and Rumble Fish.
