Storyline

"The Lost Angel" is the name of a saloon presided over by Eliza, a woman of sterling character, but with dim appreciation of the finer ethics. A new preacher is expected at Noose Gap. His coming is rather startling. Some desperadoes try to hold up a stage roach in which he is traveling. Being driven off, they make straight for "The Lost Angel." The stage driver suspects their destination. He and the minister rush into the saloon just as one of the rascals is embracing Eliza, and they clean out the place. One of them, however, succeeds in landing a knock-out blow on the Dominie. Eliza comes to his aid. The stage driver notices this and is jealous. The boys at the Gap are very sore at the young preacher's introduction to them, but he pays little heed to their objections and never hesitates in pointing out to them that they should turn from Darkness unto Light.

Is not vigorous
28 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Anne Schaefer plays the barmaid at the saloon of "The Lost Angel" with good strong emotional grip. But the story, by G.A. Pierce, is not vigorous except where the producer has put naturalness into the scenes or the players have put humanity into the characters; but this holds all the way through except at the end, where the heroine dies by throwing herself in front of the gun of her lover, who is aiming at the new minister of whom he is unjustly jealous. Rollin S. Sturgeon produced it. Anne Schaefer plays the heroine, Mr. Weston, the minister; Mr. Kunkel, the lover and George Holt, the villain. - The Moving Picture World, November 8, 1913
