Seven Slaps (German: Sieben Ohrfeigen) is a 1937 German comedy film directed by Paul Martin and starring Lilian Harvey, Willy Fritsch and Alfred Abel. Like the earlier Lucky Kids, which had the same director and stars, it was an attempt to create a German version of screwball comedy. While the previous film had a New York setting, this takes place in London.[1]

The film's sets were designed by Erich Kettelhut.


After he loses some money on the stock exchange a young man seeks revenge on the speculator responsible by slapping him. He intends to slap him once every day for a week as retribution, but things become complicated when he becomes entangled with the speculator's attractive daughter.
