Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Woo-woo Hugh Herbert is the star of Universal's Slightly Tempted. Herbert plays a kleptomaniac who promises to go straight for the sake of his daughter Peggy Moran. But old habits die hard, and soon Herbert is lifting valuables at the home of wealthy widow Elisabeth Risdon. Fortunately, the old lady takes a liking to the loveable thief. A bunch of professional thieves complicate matters by trying to enlist Hugh in their ranks, but all's well when the film's 60 minutes run their course.
