The author reflects on the review made by Barry King on the book "The Classical Hollywood Cinema," calling it the "Wisconsin Project." Living and working in Wisconsin, the author said she realizes there is no "Wisconsin Project." King also contrasts it with books like "British Cinema History" and "British Cinema Now," suggesting that they are speculative rather than conclusive because no British institution would pay for the kind of research that went into "The Classical Hollywood Cinema."
