| One Potato, Two Potato
I grew up in the town where this movie was made! At first I felt why my town for this movie? I always felt that although where I lived seemed part of the 'tolerant' north, however it was in the end just like every other place in 'middle' American that represented the themes in this movie. It had a profound effect on me, besides being a well-made film, it's thought-provoking theme woke me up in 1965 to all the undercurrents of racism around me and in the town that I had been ignoring. To bring the theme even more to the fore, I saw this movie with our then exchange student who was from Africa. I think he found the movie very bewildering, but all of us with him were very uncomfortable! I would really like to find a copy of this movie, any ideas? I am told that it can be ordered but is very expensive, but I don't even know where to order it.
