Trivia:
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 »
Goofs:
Continuity: Steve begins to draw devil horns on a photograph of Mimi. He draws one horn in a close-up, then in the cut to a wider shot, he throws the pencil down. Two horns have been drawn on the photo, even though he only drew one.See more »
Quotes:
Steve Sherman:Besides it's your fault Mr. Chalmers, remember that 'Welcome to Los Angeles' party at your house ? That's where I met that blonde. To tell you the truth I don't even know her name.
Bertram Chalmers, Sherman's Boss:It's Mrs. Chalmers.

With such talent you would expect a whole lot better., 8 February 2014
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

"A New Kind of Love" is a genuinely bad film--something you'd never expect considering it stars Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. Additionally, having Thelma Ritter for support would also seem to guarantee a much better film. However, despite the talent, the film is terrible--with only a few moments here or there that rise above the rest. The bottom line is that if you have a badly written film, even top stars won't save it.

Paul Newman's character is a HUGE part of the problem. While he's supposed to be a bright and talented newspaper man, he's mostly just a horny guy who spends most of his time chasing women. This is very one-dimensional and makes him hard to like. As for Woodward, she is more interesting--a scared woman who makes herself look far less attractive because of her fears. However, after getting herself a makeover when she's in Paris, he sees her and thinks she's a prostitute--a very expensive prostitute--and that intrigues him. Does any of this sound the least bit romantic? And, does it seem very funny? If your answer to both is 'no', then you see why the film has a lot of problems. All in all, a very disappointing and unfunny movie.

By the way, there really is a Festival of St. Catherines and women really do such silly hats. I assume, however, that most parties for St. Catherines did not involve having Maurice Chevalier showing up to entertain!
