- History of Green Goddess:
- Actor George Arliss was appearing at that time in San Francisco in William Archer’s play called "The Green Goddess".
- The play had opened in New York in 1921, and was twice made into a motion picture, in 1923 and 1930 – all versions starring Arliss.
- To celebrate the play's success and honor the actor, Palace chef Philip Reomer created a special composed salad for a dinner party.
- The delicious salad and dressing really caught on and
- became an intermittent “fad” lasting for decades.
