Trivia

In the film, there is a prostitute hangout at the corner of 27th Street and Market Street/Avenue D in Galveston. This particular location was once a department store during the turn of the 20th Century after the Galveston Storm of 1900 and during the 1970s - it became a local bar. The building sat vacant for decades and sadly, was demolished in 2002 and redeveloped. The windowed building seen in the background is owned by the Jesse Tree Ministries since 1996. See more »

Goofs

The building exterior of the Galveston Police Department's Central Headquarters where H.J. and Vega jump is totally different from the one seen where both men are hiding where the police cruisers disperse. The unknown exterior where both men jump could be either the Galveston County Courthouse complex located at Ball/19th Street or the University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston main campus.

How can I buy a copy of this movie?
23 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was born in 1964 and "Together Brothers" was one of the first movies I saw in The Fox Theater in downtown Detroit after riding the bus at the age of 10 yrs old. This movie has never left my memory. I bring it up in conversation with people who came up in the same era to see if they remember and I've yet to run across anyone who remembers the movie. I was in the movie theater with my oldest brother (only 4 years older than me) and I can remember being a little afraid because the movie was dark and "a bad man" was after a little boy. I also remember feeling a little pride (for a 10 yr old) in the boys for trying to find the man who killed the police officer. I've been trying to find information on the movie in order to purchase it. I've been all over the Internet but run into dead ends. The closest I come to any information is the sound track from Barry White and the Unlimited Orchestra. Is there anyone out there who can help me?
