3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this deeply personal tale of estrangement and reconciliation between two rebellious brothers, set in a dreamlike and timeless Tulsa, Francis Ford Coppola gives mythic dimensions to intimate, painful emotions. The director's "art film for teenagers" was his second adaptation of young-adult novelist S. E. Hinton's work in a single year, after the more classically styled The Outsiders. Graced with a remarkable cast headed by Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, and Diane Lane; haunting black-and-white visuals that hark back to German expressionism and forward to Coppola's own Tetra; and a powerful percussive score by Steward Copeland that underlines the movie's romantic fatalism, Rumble Fish pulsates with genuine love and dread"--Container
