When his editor tells him he's being reassigned to Paris, "where you'll probably die," Newman replies, "Yeah, but what a wonderful way to go." The line turned out to be prophetic - the very next year, Newman played an American living in Paris in What a Way to Go! (1964). See more »

Very thin sex comedy, dressed to entertain but with nowhere to go
"A New Kind of Love" is a forgettable farce comedy teamed with Newman and Woodward It's an unpretentious story: a simple, mannish woman foolish1y devotes herself to a career instead of doing what women are supposed to dohunt for husbands But she gives her beauty treatment, a new style and expensive clothes and she'll straighten out and find a man The new look is that after her marked change, the man mistakes her for a prostitute
Although she's humiliated, she encourages his misunderstanding, telling him sensational stories about herself until he falls in love with her! The implication: if satisfying a man's infantile sex fantasies is the only way to get him, it's better than being an ordinary professional woman
Joanne Woodward plays a fashion designer who, with blonde hair and showy makeup, actually looks more uninteresting than before
Newman plays a sportswriter whose athletics with blonds has kept him from winning the Pulitzer Prize He's an arrogant, alcoholic ill-bred man As usual, he has some effective lecherous looks and self-disgusted expressions, but with all the charm and the grace
