Question: What show featuring the exploits of everyday folks was hosted by luminaries like Byron Allen, Mark Russell and Fred Willard?

Last Question: What two Matt Dillon films did Francis Ford Coppola shoot back-to-back in Tulsa?

Answer: The Outsiders and Rumble Fish

Francis Ford Coppola had not intended to make a film about teen angst until middle-school students from Lone Star Elementary School in Fresno, California, great fans of The Godfather, wrote to him about adapting The Outsiders. When Coppola read the book, he was moved not only to adapt and direct “The Outsiders”, but to follow it the next year by adapting another S.E. Hinton novel, Rumble Fish. The latter film’s cast included Matt Dillon, Diane Lane, and Glenn Withrow from “The Outsiders”.

The film was shot on location in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Coppola filmed The Outsiders and Rumble Fish back-to-back in 1982.
