One Potato Two Potato was the first American motion picture to deal with the theme of interracial marriage between a black man and a white woman. Essentially, it is a simple tale about ordinary people, some white, some black.

Julie (Barbara Barrie) has divorced Joe (Richard Mulligan), her white husband, on the grounds of desertion. In order to support herself and her little girl, Julie takes a job in a factory where she meets a black, Frank (Bernie Hamilton). Mutual admiration and compatibility evolve into love and the couple decides to marry, mindful of possible problems ahead. They go to live on a farm with Frank's parents.

When Joe returns and discovers that Julie's new husband is a black, he sues for custody of his daughter. Then, out of spite and racial resentment, he attempts to seduce, unsuccessfully. Fearing increasing odds against their custody case, Frank does nothing to redress this grievance. "They won't let me be a man," he cries. Finally, the court rules against the interracial couple, awarding the child to her white father. The judge bases his decision on the presumptive best interests of the kid in present day society.

The three black roles in the motion picture are done with integrity and sensitivity. The inner turmoil and conflict confronting Frank are told with honesty.
