Louis J. Gasnier, whose directorial technique hadn't progressed much since his 1914 effort The Perils of Pauline, did rather better than expected in 1927's Beauty Shoppers. Young Peggy Raymond (Doris Hill) aspires to become a model, while art-gallery proprietor Maddox (Ward Crane) aspires to get his mitts on Peggy. When our heroine turns him down, Maddox frames Peggy for the theft of a painting. She is saved from prison through the efforts of handsome artist Dick Merwin (Thomas Haines). Mae Busch has all the best scenes as Peggy's gold-digging roommate who ends up with a rich husband and a passel of headaches.
