How to Handle Women
aka Fresh Every Hour/The Prince of Peanuts/The Prince of Knuts
A comedy about a peanut-loving commercial artist (Tyron) who swaps places with Prince Hendryx of Volgaria (Keane) to help him to secure a bank loan in American, using his country’s peanut crop as collateral. Neither a critical nor financial success, the film went through several title changes. Originally announced as Meet the Prince, the producers also titled it Fresh Every Hour and The Prince of Peanuts before finally settling on How to Handle Women.
