The role which ultimately went to Marsha Mason was originally given to another actress that was going to shoot another film. She called to ask the director, who declined, to push production of the film back for a couple of months. Mazursky hung up the phone and contacted his casting director, asking about Mason who just so happened to be at the casting office. When the actress walked in, the director hired her on the spot.

Blume in Love is honestly one of Paul Mazursky's best films. George Segal is fantastic as the charismatic, yet deeply pathetic protagonist Stephen Blume and Kris Kristofferson bounces off of him enjoyably in one of his early film roles. The script creates an engrossing, believable portrait of romantic relationships in the 1970s, while also having several laugh-out-loud moments. Additionally, Mazursky makes great use out of both Los Angeles and Venice, Italy as locations. Dramatically effective and boasting several memorable characters, Blume in Love is in the same league as An Unmarried Woman and is a a must-see for Mazursky fans.
