The film stars a virtual Who’s Who of top Chinese and Chinese American film artists, including Ang Lee, Joan Chen, Wayne Wang, Nancy Kwan, James Hong, Lisa Lu, B.D. Wong, Tsai Chin and writers Amy Tan and David Henry Hwang. Also featured are Luise Rainer, Turhan Bey and Christopher Lee.

“What's amazing about Arthur Dong's HOLLYWOOD CHINESE, a chronicle of Chinese Americans in Hollywood beginning in the silent era and culminating in today's success stories, is how much fun it is. Loaded with film clips, celebrity interviews and without an ax to grind, it's a film not just for Chinese Americans but for film lovers in general.  FOURS STARS!”
—C. Allen Johnson, SF Chronicle

“Arthur Dong once again proves that he is one of the most intelligent, incisive documentarians alive with HOLLYWOOD CHINESE, his study of the portrayal of this ethnic group in the movies. Myriad, amazingly culled interviews with actors, filmmakers and historians add rich texture to this bracingly entertaining, fast-moving survey.”
David Noh, Film Journal International

“Groundbreaking! Overt racism collides with the economics of an industry and the perceptions of a culture in HOLLYWOOD CHINESE, a provocative critical survey of the first century of American cinema and the ways that Chinese and Chinese-Americans have been depicted by the industry.”
S. James Synder, The New York Sun

“If you want to see a fantastic overview of the struggle of Asian-Americans in film in the US, a struggle to be included, a struggle for a voice, a struggle for some truth, be sure to check out HOLLYWOOD CHINESE!”
Rick Ayers, The Huffington Post
