Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Hard to think of Lionel Barrymore as a romantic lead, much less a young coward who makes good. Yet Barrymore plays both in the 1916 silent production Brand of Cowardice. Barrymore plays Cyril Hamilton, a chicken-hearted easterner who heads west. He makes up for his past misdeeds by rescuing a Cavalry colonel's daughter Grace Valentine from Mexican bandidos. Note: the "Robert Cummings" and "John Davidson" listed in the cast are not the talkie-era stars of the same name.
