Storyline

Belle Gordon, an orphan, finds an advertisement in the papers for a governess to apply to the Rev. Strong, at Cripple Creek, Col. She writes and has her fare advanced. Upon arriving there she finds the place consists of a crowd of disreputable miners and dance-hall girls. She learns that the advertisement was merely a trap to lure her out into the dance-hall of Martin Mason. She tries to get away but cannot. Dynamite Ann, one of the worst women of the place, remembering the time that she first came to Cripple Creek through the same sort of an advertisement, wishes to help the girl.

There is some good photography and mountain scenery
11 December 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Two reels of lurid Western drama. The opening is a saloon scene, in which Dynamite Ann announces that she has decided to reform. As proof of that intention she assumes the care of two motherless children and also acts as protector to an orphan girl who has been lured to the mining camp by means of a false advertisement. There are one or two Indians, some bad men, some good men; an interior of a mine, which is reached by means of a basket and windlass. A child is kidnapped and thrown over a cliff, and is marvelously caught uninjured by a good Indian. There is a double wedding at the conclusion and simultaneously Dynamite Ann meets her death by a rifle shot. She is just able to request that her epitaph be "Dynamite Ann. She died right." There is some good photography and mountain scenery. One especially good picture is of a field of waving grain. - The Moving Picture World, July 13, 1912
