In Martin Ritt's The Brotherhood, Kirk Douglas plays Frank Ginetta, an old-line Mafioso who resents the newer policies encouraged by his younger brother Vince (Alex Cord). Frank resists all attempts at modernizing his operation, whereupon Vince cajoles his father-in-law Dominick Bertolo (Luther Adler) to spearhead an inter-mob rebellion. Summing up Bertolo as a rat and a liar, Frank has the man murdered in a graphically brutal fashion. It is up to Vince to exact retribution by killing his own

[Director Martin] Ritt can do very little with the breast-beating which attends this tale of brotherly love and self-sacrifice.
The acting is memorable throughout - Douglas characteristically tense, Cord perfect as the smoother sibling and Adler menacing as the boss.
