Broken Blossoms or The Yellow Man and the Girl 1919

Oh. My. God. So racist. I know it's trying to be the opposite, but the ignorance on display is so astoundingly, shockingly, unbelievably vast that the film becomes a mess of truly stupid melodrama built on a backbone of offensive racism. There is no way I could enjoy this film, even allowing for the fact that it's from a very different time in American history.
