Although his mother (Dolores del Río) chooses seven eligible candidates for marriage, Prince Ramon (Omar Sharif) shows scant interest and rides away on his wild stallion. When the horse throws him, he's rescued by flying monk Brother Joseph (Leslie French). Joseph gives him a sack of flower, telling him that his future wife will make seven dumplings from it, but that Rodrigo will only get six. Sure enough, local peasant Isabella (Sophia Loren) makes seven dumplings, but eats one herself.
