In Camarillo, principality of the Spanish dominion, there lived two brothers, Jose and Manuel. Born in a noble Spanish family and reared by a mother noble in both station and character, they were vastly different morally. Jose was a dutiful son and upright young man, while Manuel was the black sheep. It was on Easter Sunday morning during the processional that Manuel appears in an intoxicated condition and foully ridicules the priests and acolytes as they enter the chapel of the old mission. At this the mother's pride is hurt beyond endurance and she exiles her profligate son from her forever. Manuel is shunned as a viper and while making his way along the road, meets Pedro, the notorious political outlaw, who sympathizes with him and offers him inducements to join him, and so takes him to his camp. Meanwhile, Jose woos and wins the Red Rose of Capistran and the day for the wedding is set. Manuel finds the life in the outlaws' camp palls, and, drawn by irresistible memories, he visits...

This is How Brothers Behave
14 August 2016 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Arthur Johnson gets drunk and his brother, Dell Henderson, tries to stop him from making a fool of himself. Alas, he fails, and their mother kicks him out. Johnson decides to take his revenge on the source of his woes: Henderson.

I've got a brother and this is a bit overblown, but accurate. I suppose if you're Hispanic and in a movie in a melodramatic era, this is how you might behave. Me, I just sulk.

Griffith shot this movie during one of his winter expeditions to southern California. He used the local landscape, setting some of the scenes in now-vanished scenes, including an adobe building. Although his company's acting is broader than usual for this period, which can be attributed to how he thought Hispanics behave and his crowd scenes make sense, although they would continue to improve. He had only been directing for two and a half years at this point.
