Something that I thought they both did well on was the character 's background. They had Ponyboy’s parents dying in a car crash and they made Johnny still be abused by his parents. The last major thing that Francis Coppola and S. E. Hilton did that was somewhat the same was the character’s appearance. They both portrayed Darry as big and muscly, and Johnny was always extremely nervous. They made Ponyboy still have brown hair and they made Soda Pop be wild and

The narrator sets up the tone in Buddy’s voice to help the reader visualize his god complex, and how repulsed she is, even comparing his “meat and potatoes” to “turkey gizzards”.
