Warren Beatty and Julie Christie had been previously offered to play Stephen and Nina Blume, when this project was in development and, for a while, they were both attached, until Beatty dropped out, convincing also then-lover and partner Christie to leave the film as well since he was supposedly too busy working on Shampoo (1975) and on the script of Heaven Can Wait (1978), which was made by them, only several years later.

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.
