One Potato, Two Potato Information

One Potato, Two Potato is a 1964 black-and-white drama film directed by Larry Peerce and starring Barbara Barrie and Bernie Hamilton.


The story concerns the difficulties faced by an interracial marriage between an African-American office worker and a white divorcee.
