Sent to Paris to steal fashion ideas, department store buyer Samantha Blake (Woodward) decides a complete makeover is in order so people will stop mistaking her for a boy. Instead, she is mistaken for a Parisian "Lady of the Night" and decides to play up that role. Meanwhile, American journalist Steve Sherman (Newman) is in Paris to write about the fashion shows, but decides instead to write about this mysterious "Lady of the Night" and the two find themselves falling in love.

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).
