Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The title of this German farce translates loosely as The Slight Indiscretion. What makes the story all the more amusing is the fact that the indiscreet hero, Walter Heller (Herman Thimig), is a divorce attorney. When his affections are stolen by femme fatale Lona (Hilde Hildebrand), Heller's wife Erika (Renate Muller) gets even by "vamping" Lona's husband Dr. Eppman (Hans Brauseweiter). A dual divorce ceremony follows almost immediately, but everything is straightened out in time for the closing production number. German audiences were happy with Der Kleine Seitenspring, but American observers felt it was a shade overlong.
