We are all posed together under the flashing strobe as a production assistant finally goes off and drags a local ragamuffin away for pilfering the candy bars and other goodies that are laid out, just off set. “Keep your goddamn hands off the food, it’s not for you, it’s for the actors,” the assistant yells. “Yeah, Leif, you hear that,” calls Macchio to Leif Garrett who is standing at the snack table, “those are for the actors!” Garrett is mortified. A hush falls over the room until we all burst out laughing. I look over at Ralph, who now looks a little scared. Flash! Snap! The camera captures the moment. That frame of film will become the poster for The Outsiders
