Biography by Hans J. Wollstein

Buffalo Bill Jr.'s brunette leading lady in Ballyhoo Buster (1928), Peggy Shaw had been a member of Gus Edward's famous kiddie troupe (along with, among others, Lila Lee) and appeared in two seasons of Florenz Ziegfeld's famous Midnight Frolics prior to entering films in 1919. Not too different from a host of other starlets, Shaw played ingénues in scores of mostly forgotten 1920's melodramas before leaving films at the advent of sound.
