Heaven Will Protect a Woiking Goil

(Vogue Motion Picture Company, 1916)

In this parody of early film melodramas, country girl Nell travels to the heartless city to find her drunken father. While there, she falls into the clutches of a mustache-twirling villain. When she rejects his advances, he and a crooked cop chase her down and tie her to the railroad tracks as a train speedily approaches.
