I am trying to replace the chrome backing plates behind the armrest of my '72 Cutlass Supreme. I need to remove the interior door handle to do this. How do I get the handle off?

They make a tool to remove the clips. I have also had some luck with taking a rag, and make like a large rope, slip it behind the handle and rock it back and forth while pulling down, and it should snag the clips and pull them off, may loose them this way, but cheap to replace.
