On March 25, 1983, the 1960s teen drama hit the big screen featuring a cast jam-packed with future stars, including Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, and Diane Lane. The film was based on the best-selling S.E. Hinton novel about the rivalry between the James Dean wannabe "Greasers" and the rich "Socs" (short for "Socials"). It helped launch several careers, including that of Brat Packers Rob Lowe and Emilio Estevez. Francis Ford Coppola directed; he also went on to helm the more unconventional "Rumble Fish," based on another Hinton novel.
While we may not need to tell you where most of the cast is today, there are a few faces who've faded from the spotlight. To all of them (and especially to Ponyboy), we say, "Stay gold."
