Trivia 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 was 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 »
Goofs When Tex and Mason run the truck into the ditch with the hitch hiker the passenger side window that should be up is down, then up, then down again. When the driver's side window is shot out by the police, you can see a second pane of glass with a bullet hole behind the shattered glass. See more »

Quotes Tex McCormick: [Whimpers] Oh no...
Mason McCormick: [walks into Tex's room] Tex? You alright? You lose Something?
Tex McCormick: [laying under his bed with only his feet sticking out] It's kinda nice down here. Cool and Quiet.
Mason McCormick: Yeah, well maybe you should hurry it up so you can come have breakfast under the kitchen table. Then maybe you can catch a ride under the school bus!
Tex McCormick: [Gets up from under his bed and wraps a blanket around him] You would like that wouldn't you?
