In 1980, Jo Ellen Misakian and her students in Fresno CA were instrumental in getting the film made through a letter writing campaign to Francis Ford Coppola. Coppola remembers the letters fondly, and credits them for his initial inspiration to make the film and later oversee an extended cut for The Outsiders The Complete Novel.

An outdoor screening of The Outsiders The Complete Novel will also show Sat Sept 25 at The Outsiders House Museum. Doors at 6pm, film at sunset – tickets and details here.

Based on the 1967 book by Tulsan S. E. Hinton, Coppola shot the film in Tulsa with a star-studded cast of future A-listers like C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Matt Dillon, Diane Lane, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, and Tom Cruise.

The new 4K restoration of The Outsiders The Complete Novel is the ultimate version of the film. The Complete Novel expanded cut includes 20 minutes of additional footage with a beginning and ending more in line with the book, a scene shot at Circle Cinema, and a rocking soundtrack. The restoration was made from original camera negatives and overseen by Coppola, resulting in a gorgeous picture that is a must-see for Outsiders fans new and old.
