Future director Hobart Henley essayed the title role in Universal's The Measure of Leon DuBray. A young trapper, Leon, falls in love with the pretty daughter (Luella Maxim) of a poacher. Unable to pay for an operation that will save his mother's life, Leon is sorely tempted to turn in his sweetheart's father to collect a huge reward. He doesn't, but a rival trapper does, carefully arranging things so that Leon will appear to be the "squealer." With his mother dead and his girlfriend giving him the cold shoulder, Leon has no choice but to leave the forest and try his luck in the big city. While working at a lumber yard, Leon is confronted with his ex-sweetheart's poacher dad, now an escaped convict. Rather than call the cops, Leon compassionately stage-manages a reunion between the poacher and his daughter. Having proven that he's a "good egg" after all, Leon wins back his girl's affections.
