An excellent cast elevates the quality of this ultra-cheap independent effort. Adrienne Ames stars as Helene, the owner of a posh beauty salon and reducing parlor. Most of Helene's clients are from the society's upper crust, but that doesn't prevent them from dishing out vitriolic gossip with reckless abandon. Columnist Terry Kent (William Newell) has a field day printing up the "hot" tidbits bandied about in the salon, causing no end of trouble for Helene and her boyfriend Pat Fenton (Craig Reynolds). The supporting cast is a film buff's dream, consisting of such veterans as Esther Ralston, George Meeker, Pert Kelton and Vivien Oakland. Slander House was based on a novel by Madeline Woods.
