When Universal's plans to create a popular screen team out of Glenn Tryon and Patsy Ruth Miller fell through, the studio co-starred Tryon with another contract charmer, Marian Nixon, in How to Handle Women. When Prince Hendryx (Raymond Keane) of Volgaria is unable to float a loan during a visit to the U.S., it is understandable; the principal export of Volgaria is peanuts, of which America (or at least Georgia) has in abundance. The Prince decides that the best way to promote his country's product is with a big-time publicity campaign, and to that end he hires press agent Leonard Higgins (Glenn Tryon). Impersonating the prince, Higgins stages a lavish all-peanut society dinner, complete with a chorus of lovely bathing beauties. What this has to do with handling women is anybody's guess, though Higgins does end up winning the hand of heroine Beatrice Fairbanks (Nixon).
