Storyline

The Goddess, the prettiest and best natured girl that ever graced that little mining town, meets the tenderfoot prospector and leaves him another worshiper of her. His chances, however, are slim for Blue-grass Pete has won her affections, he having at an opportune moment saved her from the fangs of a snake which was about to attack her. Pete, however, is weak and is fascinated by the Goddess' sister, who visits her. He later gives the sister his savings to keep. The Goddess, heartbroken over the loss of her sweetheart, is now sure they will be married and determines to leave. Pete's pal, knowing of the girl having the savings, plans to steal them. The Goddess overhears the plot, but her sorrow having left her in a vengeful spirit, she makes no effort to secure aid. Later her better nature asserts itself, and securing aid, she and the miners arrive in time to save her sister from a horrible death, for Pete's pal had been recognized by the girl and had tied her to a post in the cabin. ...

The story of the picture doesn't drag at all
18 October 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A good, interesting story, commendably sensational. It serves to contrast the characters of two sisters. The dark one, who comes on a visit to the sagebrush, steals the sweetheart away from the light haired one, the "Goddess of Sagebrush." It was acted by all pretty well. The goddess is especially pleasing in this part. She is unique among picture players in the possession of hair that in the sunshine looks like a nimbus. Her acting also seems to be very popular. The story of the picture doesn't drag at all; the photographs are good enough and, although there are one or two minor points that might be called weaknesses, we call it a good feature picture. - The Moving Picture World, April 6, 1912
