Factual error: When Ponyboy and Johnny leave the bar after going there to see Dally, there is a song playing on the juke box called 'Jack Daniels if you please' by David Allan Coe. This song was written and released in 1978 but the movie takes place in the '60s.
After the rumble, Dallas and Ponyboy drive to the hospital where Johnny tells Ponyboy to "Stay gold" and then dies. Dallas loses it, leaves the hospital and robs a store where the cashier shoots him. While this is happening, Ponyboy goes home were he tells everyone about Johnny and Dallas. Dallas calls Darry and tells him what happened and they tell him that they will meet him in the park. When Dallas gets to the park, the police show up and he pulls out his gun. The other guys get to the park and yell that the gun is not loaded but Dallas gets shot to death. The last scene is Ponyboy writing about what happened.
Cherry: How old are ya'll anyway?
Marcia: By the looks of it I thought you were both four.
Trivia: When Dally, Ponyboy and Johnny are in the car in the Dairy Queen parking lot, a little girl comes up to them and asks for some change. That is a young Sofia Coppola, daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, who is now also a notable movie director.
Question: At the beginning of the movie when you see pony boy and johnny go up to Dallas you can here music playing in the background. When ponyboy asks "what d'you wanna do?" and dally goes "Nothin' legal, man." it gets turned up louder. Does anyone know the name of the song and the artist? I think it's called Gloria but I'm not sure.
