My uncle was burned when he was young and had a rough life afterwards.
He recently passed away in early October of 2015 after a battle with substance abuse.
A couple of days before he passed I called him and caught up with him (he lived down the road but I never really saw him, busy life, blah blah blah), I could tell he was out of it and not doing well.
When we were getting off the phone he said "Stay gold, ponyboy" and I didn't get the reference and he hung up.
That was the last thing he ever said to me.
After he died, I googled that quote and saw it was from this movie and my grandma told me it was one of his favorites so I ordered it and watched it.
When Johnny said "Stay Gold, Ponyboy" to him right before he died from his burns I lost it.
I felt such a loss for my uncle I was never really close to. He was my Godfather and uncle but I never really, really knew him, but I did know that my uncle LOVED sunsets just like Ponyboy.
I am so happy I watched this movie.
The movie was shot in Tulsa, Oklahoma in the same areas that S.E. Hinton wrote about. The location couldn’t have been more perfect because all though Tulsa isn’t the most gorgeous place in the whole world but, they managed to make it look beautiful and interesting. If you have read the book the location is everything you would expect and more.
Francis Ford Coppola did an amazing job directing this movie. He really let the actors make the character theirs. For example in one scene a hat flew into the shot, it was some guy's hat that had accidently stepped in front of the fan that was making the wind. Francis didn't stop recording and two-bit (emilio estevez) just ran and grabbed it and kept going on with the scene. He just let everyone act and make the movie great. The movie isn’t perfect but it's real.
There were a lot of stars in this movie. C. Thomas Howell played the “young and innocent” Ponyboy Curtis, and his brothers Sodapop “Rob Lowe” and Darry “Patrick Swayze”. Some other actors were Emilio Estevez, Tom Cruise, Ralph Macchio, and Matt Dillon. This cast is legend. The movie had amazing music. Most of the songs were Elvis Presley and they were edited and placed in the movie perfectly.
The movie is about the greasers (the lower class) and the socs (the high class) and the things teens went through living in Tulsa Oklahoma in the 1960’s. Ponyboy and his friend get into trouble and have to find there way out of it without getting caught by the cops. After they get back in town it's war between the two classes and in all the madness two of Ponyboys good friends die. He goes back to school has to raise his grade and he wrote about his life. And The Outsiders was born.
If i were to rate this movie it would be a five out of five. I definitely recommend watching it because it is a great movie with fantastic actors. The outsiders came out in 1983 but it's still relatable in a lot of ways.
