Photograph caption dated March 16, 1959 reads, "Throughout his 30-year career, Henry Fonda never has had it so good. Having just completed a $3,000,000 20th-Fox Western in CinemaScope and De Luxe Color, 'Warlock,' Fonda stepped right into a fast paced romantic comedy, 'The Man Who Understood Women.' One of the extra joys of 'The Man Who Understood Women' is his co-star, Leslie Caron (not shown), as well as the three former 'Miss Universe' contestants who are in the cast. Left to right, the lovely lasses are Liliane Taelemans (Miss Belgium of 1958), Renate Hoy (Miss Germany of 1954), and Jacqueline Beer (Miss France of 1955)."
