The police detective is played by Howard Picard. He was a real Galveston Police Department detctive at the time of filming. He started in show business by wrestling alligators at Sea Arama Marine Park in Galveston during the lat le 1960s. At the same time he worked the night shift as a patrolman with the police department. See more »
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.

Despite being picked up by a major Hollywood studio, "Together Brothers" is one of the most obscure entries in the Blaxploitation genre that was so popular in the early 1970s. It may be pretty unknown, because it's not as flashy and flamboyant as most other Blaxploitation movies of the period. In fact, it takes itself pretty seriously throughout. The serious script does provide some interest, though it's not without flaws. The story is kind of rambling and unfocused at times; you can sense some real padding at times. Also, most of the characters are somewhat underwritten and lacking true different personalities from each other. But while the characters may be inadequately written at times, the (mostly) no-name cast does a pretty good job acting out these characters; there isn't a shabby performance in all of the cast. And the movie is often directed in a real way where it almost feels like you are a fly on the wall and seeing real people in real situations. You can really sense the grit and realism. If you are in a patient mood and are prepared for some minor imperfections, you'll probably find this movie a sometimes interesting change of pace from other genre entries of this period.
