''Rumble Fish'' is a 1975 coming of age novel by S.E S. E. Hinton, and the sequel to her first classic, ''Literature/TheOutsiders'', although the links between the two are slight.



Was made into a strange but stylish, black and white feature film by Creator/FrancisFordCoppola, written largely by S.E Hinton herself. Bashed by critics on its release for being confusing, and hugely unconventional, the film is now considered something of a cult classic, with many modern critics preferring it to the first film, ''Film/TheOutsiders''. The film starred Creator/MattDillon, Creator/MickeyRourke, Creator/DianeLane, Creator/NicolasCage, Creator/VincentSpano, Creator/DianaScarwid and Creator/DennisHopper.

--> '''Smokey''' You know, if there were gangs around like in the old days, I'd be running things, not you. You'd be second lieutenant. You might have gotten by for a while on the Motorcycle Boy's rep, but you have to be smart to run things. You ain't got your brother's brains. It's nothing personal, Rusty James, but nobody would follow you into a fight because you'd get people killed - and nobody wants to be killed.
