Film Details

One Potato, Two Potato

Director Larry Peerce in Person!
United States | 1964 | Larry Peerce

One Potato, Two Potato

One of the most significant movies of the 1960s was shot in Painesville almost 50 years ago by first-time filmmaker Larry Peerce. The independently produced One Potato, Two Potato was the first American movie to deal with interracial marriage. Barbara Barrie plays a divorced woman who marries an African American man (Bernie Hamilton), then finds herself embroiled in a nasty child custody case with her racist ex-husband (Richard Mulligan). Barrie won the Best Actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival for her performance, and Peerce went on to direct over 50 more movies or TV shows in Hollywood. “Led the way for such major-studio studies of the interracial marriage-romance in A Patch of Blue and Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.” –Donald Bogle. Larry Peerce will answer audience questions after the screening.
