Synopsis by Hal Erickson

When time came to adapt Aldo De Benedetti's novel Eravamo Sette Sorelle for the screen, De Benedetti undertook the job himself. The title, which translates as We Were Seven Sisters, refers to a septet of chorus girls. United only by their common job and their love for the finer things in love, the seven heroines look around for a wealthy "father." Choosing aristocrat roue Antonio Gandusio as their patsy, each girl arrives separately at Gandusio's doorstep, claiming to be the offspring of one of his previous mistresses. The plot wraps up in conventional fashion when the old man's son falls in love with the most sensible (and likeable) of the girls.
