GREEN BOOK seems a perfectly decent, unfairly maligned film but like others I was disturbed by an early scene meant to mark the extreme from which Frank journeys to tolerance. After some black tradesmen have a drink in the kitchen, Frank disposes of the glasses -- actually dumps them in the bin. This is so offensive (even by '60s standards) that there's no coming back from it, and one wonders why it was allowed to make it into the film.

Bravo Andy! Best assessment of 'Green Book' and the controversies surrounding it I've read.
