Did you know:
In the poster for the film, the Greasers are shown laughing as Ralph Marchio is smirking. This was a candid shot, taken during the photo session in which the actors were supposed to look tough at the camera. What happened was that Leif Garret (Bob) was approaching the food table off-camera, and a stagehand was trying to stop one of the local poverty striken kids from stealing the food, yelling it was for the talent. “The food is for the talent (meaning actors),” and Macchio sarcastically said, “Yeah, it’s for the TALENT!” This comment cracked up the cast, and the photo was used as the Greasers loved ballbusting jaded teen icon Garret.
