Classic Independent Still Hits Hard

I first saw this movie in film class, and was so moved by it that I taped it off the independent Film Channel when they showed it, and watched it twice since. And, it still makes me cry every time I watch it. First, I've never seen a movie so understated about its anger. In this regard Barbara Barrie and Bernie Hamilton are both so good that I don't know the right words to describe it. Second, the girl is not Hollywood "cute", she's not a smarty pants; she is 100% genuine. Third, the Judge is so slick and evil although he comes across so nice just like every Southern judge I have met in real life. My film teacher told me if she could pick one film to give someone the truth of what this country was all about in the early '60's, One Potato Two Potato would be that film. And the love story between Hamilton and Barrie is so real and beset with pain and passion that I can really relate to them.

Powerful movie

I saw this movie in the mid-60s in a theater and the last scene was heart-wrenching. I felt like I had been hit by a baseball bat. Several years later I saw the movie on TV and was surprised to find that, as that final scene approached, I could feel the same emotions building. The movie had not lost its effect! I would love to watch this movie again to see if it would have the same impact. It would be interesting if young people today would see the power of this film or if, because "things have changed," the story line would seem outdated. Apparently this film is NOT available on video, unfortunately. I wonder why? Who makes that decision?

Daring love story for that time -- or any time since

This is a story about a black and white couple who fell in love despite their efforts not to cross the color line. I saw the movie in a neighborhood Atlanta cinema and became worried about the audience's reaction both during the movie and as the people left. It was a daring subject to be presented in an angry location at a smoldering year. The audience was absolutely mute ... except for one guy that made an unwise crack to his date as we were leaving. She turned on him, tears in her eyes. This movie should be on VHS or DVD but I wouldn't be surprised if it's lost.
