An old Hungarian story was the basis for the Marguerite Clark vehicle Seven Sisters. The story takes place in a Budapest household, where it is believed that if one of the younger daughters marries first, her older siblings will be doomed to live out their lives as old maids. The youngest daughter, 5-year-old Clara (played by future leading lady Madge Evans) is hardly of marriageable age, nor are the next two daughters. But the fourth oldest, Mici (Marguerite Clark), is much sought after by potential husbands, driving her older sisters into a frenzy. For their own protection, the older girls arrange for Mici to be shipped off to a convent school, far removed from anyone in trousers. Despite her cloistered existence, Mici manages to escape long enough to attend a masked ball, where she meets and falls in love with Count Horkoy (Conway Tearle). With his help, Mici finds suitable husbands for her older sisters, and everything turns out "Jake."
