Slap in the Face (German : Ohrfeigen) is a 1970 West German comedy film directed by Rolf Thiele and starring Curd Jürgens, Gila von Weitershausen, and Alexandra Stewart. [1]

Contents

It is a loose remake of the 1937 film Seven Slaps . A young woman slaps the board of a bank she believes has swindled her out of her money. In a change from the earlier film, and as part of director Thiele's growing move towards sex comedies, she is naked when she does so.

The film was shot on location in Hamburg, Lübeck and the Selenter See.
