Overcoming his addiction to drink, John Fairmeadow ( William Desmond ) leaves the Bowery for a western logging camp posing as a minister. His boxing ability and his gentle manner reform the town drinkers and put the saloon out of business. Meanwhile, John also protects pretty orphan Pattie Batch ( Mary McAllister ) from the attentions of Jack Flack ( Albert J. Smith ). Flack is killed by saloon keeper Pale Peter ( Francis Ford ) after the body of his wife, Clare ( Marin Sais ), who was betrayed by Flack, is discovered in the river, while John and Pattie are united.
This 1924 silent drama was produced by the Universal Pictures Corporation, starring William Desmond. Sadly, The Measure of a Man may now be a lost silent film.
