Samantha Blake (Woodward) buys, or steals, all the latest fashions from around the world for her department store. Her boss Joe Bergner (George Tobias) gets it into his head to go to Paris and 'steal' the hottest new fashions and off goes Samantha and Leena (Thelma Ritter) to the City of Lights.
Steve Sherman (Paul Newman) is a columnist who gets caught playing with the wife of his boss and promptly gets sent far away to Paris until said boss can figure out a way to break his contract and fire him. He meets pal Harry (Marvin Kaplan) in Paris and decides to save his job by writing about a Parisian 'Lady of the Night' and her escapades to send back home, which proves to be a big hit!
The problem, of course, is she ain't from Paris and she ain't no 'Lady of the Night.' Samantha gets introduced as one in a con by Hogan's Heroes Robert Clary to earn a few bucks after Samantha has a complete makeover because she's tired of being mistaken for a boy! She goes along because it helps her stay close to Steve as she makes up one wild escapade after another.
Meanwhile, Leena is competing with Fellicienne (Eva Gabor) for the affection of her boss, who doesn't seem to know she's alive. Of course, Steve falls for this 'Lady of the Night' and wants to reform her for himself, until he figures it all out! Are you having fun yet?Read more ›
Joanne Woodward plays Sam, a fashion designer who copies her pieces from other houses and sells them in a bargain-basement department store. She's a "semi-virgin" who has given up on love--until during a buyer's trip to Paris she meets womanising journalist Steve (Paul Newman). There aren't any sparks until Sam hits the salons and reinvents herself as "Mimi", whom Steve is led to believe is a glamorous call-girl with a neverending collection of colourful stories.
Steve syndicates a column about the amorous adventures of "Mimi", until Sam's double life begins to spin hilariously out of control--and Steve's real feelings are discovered...
A NEW KIND OF LOVE is a colourful trip to Paris, filled with gorgeous gowns (provided by the leading fashion houses including Magnin, Pierre Cardin, Christian Dior, Lanvin-Castille, and Yves Saint Laurent). Edith Head also provides the regular wardrobe for Joanne Woodward. Never before and never again would Ms Woodward look half as ravishing as she does here. The wigs and clothes are out of this world! Ms Woodward was Golden Globe Award-nominated for her work.
Paul Newman delivers a great comedic performance here, too. The supporting cast includes the ever-reliable Thelma Ritter (in a Laurel Award-winning performance), George Tobias (aka Abner Kravitz from "Bewitched"), Eva Gabor, and a cameo from Maurice Chevalier.
The DVD sadly does not feature any extras, but just having this forgotten gem on DVD is a joy. (Single-sided, single-layer disc).

A very cute and heart warming romantic comedy set in Paris, of course. Very entertaining, fun to watch and light hearted.Published 2 months ago by John A. Leraas
Kind of corney for today's audience, but fun to see Paul & Joanne together.Published 4 months ago by Raine
I adore Paul Newman and most of his old movies but this was is so dated and insipid that it is not really funny. Save your money and watch one of his truly great movies.Published 10 months ago by Oregon selkie
I didn't care for this movie. As much as I like both Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, I didn't think either one of them were very good, especially Joanne Woodward. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Kathleen P.
