The Brand of Cowardice is a 1916 silent film starring Lionel Barrymore and released through Metro Pictures. It is a lost film.[1][2]


After Cyril Hamilton refuses to follow his father-in-law Colonel Gordon West's National Guard unit into action in the Mexican Border War, his fiancé Marcia West breaks up with him. He ashamedly enlists in another regiment and goes west but alienates all of his fellow soldiers with his pompous behavior. However, he finally redeems himself by rescuing Marcia from the bandit Navarete. Although they are overwhelmed by Navarete's forces after killing him, they are rescued by Colonel West's forces and marry.[3]



The film was shot in Huntington and Tarrytown, New York. Battle scenes were shot in New Hampton using local convicts as extras.[3]
