Synopsis by Hal Erickson
From all existing evidence, Temptations of a Shop Girl wasn't any better than its title. Heroine Betty Compson is saddled with a kleptomaniac kid sister (Pauline Garon), who pilfers expensive dresses at the behest of her low-life boyfriend. When the sister is arrested on suspicion, Compson nobly takes the blame and suffers magnificently as a result. She then sets about to destroy the man who led her younger sibling astray. The author of Temptations of a Shop Girl was not credited on screen, which may have been a defense mechanism on his part.
