Tom and Dick are brothers and are being educated at the same college. Tom is a studious fellow and graduates with honors, while Dick is expelled from college through misbehavior. Dick is ashamed to go home, but before leaving Tom gives him a locket containing a picture of their mother. Ten years later Tom, who is a successful lawyer, is married and has two little children.

It has many good qualities but no special strength
31 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A melodramatic story of two brothers. Their ways parted at college where Tom was expelled for hazing while Dick graduated with honor. At their parting Dick gave Tom a locket with their mother's portrait in it and this was the means of identification when fate brought them together again after many years. Tom, who had sunk to the underworld, had accidentally killed a man who was attempting to rob him of this cherished locket. Dick, who had become a great lawyer, was assigned by the judge to plead Tom's case and the locket was handed to him. His plea wins and his brother is acquitted. The picture is competently made, well acted and photographed and is pleasing. It has many good qualities but no special strength. Mr. Costello plays Dick, and Mr. Delaney plays Tom. The rather close resemblance between their profiles makes them convincingly brothers. One very minor part, the nurse of Dick's children, was played with very commendable naturalness, we do not know by whom. The picture is a first-class program filler. - The Moving Picture World, January 27, 1912
