Diamond Tooth Gertie (Gertie Lovejoy) was a Yukon dance-hall queen named for the sparkling diamond between her two front teeth. She made a fortune from miners' gold nuggets saying, "The poor ginks have just gotta spend it, they're that scared they'll die before they have it all out of the ground." There's a casino and music hall named after Gertie in Dawson City, called Diamond Tooth Gertie's.
