When writer of the original novel S.E. Hinton met Matt Dillon (Tex) for the first time, he said in his thick New York accent, "Yo, S.E., I thought you was a man!" Hinton recalls initially being nervous about a city kid playing the character of a country cowboy. Now, Hinton states that she believes this is one of Dillon's best performances. Dillon went on to star in two more film adaptions of Hinton's novels, The Outsiders (1983) and Rumble Fish (1983). See more »

When I saw that Disney made this movie I was expecting it to be a toned down adaptation of S.E. Hinton's novel. Boy, I was wrong. This was one of Disney's more mature movies and had all the important stuff from the book. Even the drug deal that went wrong. The characters are just as likable as they were in the book which is good. It's too bad that this movie is forgotten. There was one review that called the movie version of That was Then... This is Now a gem and I would've agreed with that statement if it didn't have that crappy ending. This is the real gem out of all S.E. Hinton adaptations. If you ever find this movie somewhere, I recommend checking it out.
