About Seven Sweethearts

Seven Sweethearts is a 1942 musical film directed by Frank Borzage and starring Kathryn Grayson, Marsha Hunt and Van Heflin. Seven Sweethearts generated legal trouble seven years later. In 1949, Hungarian playwright Ferenc Herczeg sued MGM, producer Joe Pasternak and screenwriters Walter Reisch and Leo Townsend for $200,000, claiming they had plagiarized his play Seven Sisters, which he had written in 1903 and which Paramount Pictures had adapted into The Seven Sisters a 1915 movie starring Madge Evans. Herczeg was imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp in Hungary when Seven Sweethearts was produced and released, and consequently he didn't learn of the film's existence until 1948. The suit was settled out of court for a substantial amount. Kathryn Grayson's real-life sister, Frances Raeburn, played "Cornelius."
