"A NEW KIND OF LOVE" is an unusual and worthwhile film, mostly for the way it depicts an era and the sense of morality of the time. Paul Newman and his wife, Joanne Woodward star in this comedy/love story. Newman is a journalist who gets in trouble after finding that his latest conquest is the boss's wife. It's funny to find that his "punishment" is having to go join the Paris department of the paper!
While there he meets, is agitated by and eventually falls in love with...Woodward. She's in Paris with her boss spying on fashion info for a discount clothing store.
The intended jokes don't work too well, but there's a really entertaining aspect to what's displayed on screen. It's just amazing that this kind of film with the kinds of notions it displays, was at one time acceptable.
It could never be made today with the political correctness in place.
PARAMOUNT has preserved the film's 1.85:1 aspect ratio with 16:9 enhancement. It's a great looking image. Colors are solid and contrast is flawless. There is great detail in even the darkest scenes. Grain is undetectable. Fleshtones appear natural.
PARAMOUNT has provided the film's monaural mix. It's unremarkable, without any hiss or distortion. Dialogue is always intelligible.
