In place of a conclusion, this chapter presents a “coda,” a musical term to suggest new themes and directions with the purpose of envisioning or speculating the future of the Chinese in Hollywood films. It highlights how the song “Hollywood's not America” appeals to mainstream America's conviction that Hollywood is not definitive American culture, ameliorating the fact that much of the rest of the world sees the United States through Hollywood lenses, due to Hollywood's global cultural hegemony.
