Ivan Simpson, who portrays the part of Watkins, the cockney valet to the Rajah, was born in London. He started his career as a newspaper reporter and has had a long and varied legitimate stage experience both in this country and abroad.
Alice Joyce, who returns to the screen after two years' absence, was born in Missouri. At the time of her marriage several years ago she foreswore the silver sheet to which she had so long been devoted and went into retirement. The part of the young English heroine in "The Green Goddess" appealed so strongly to her, that whe was induced to again lend her lovely personality to motion pictures.
The Hindoo ballet staged and participated in by Michio Itow, was conceived by this famous dancer after an extensive study of the native ballet of East India during a sojourn in that country. it is a combination of the fantastic with the actual Hindoo temple ceremonial. The religious fervor of the priests, reaching its climax in their chant, is carried on by the temple dancers who thus express the devotional ritual to the spirit of the their gods.
One of the most colorful personalities recently unfolded on the screen is that of Jetta Goudal. Miss Goudal is a French actress who has been in the United States several years. She first attracted attention as the Chinese girl with Richard Barthelmess in "The Bright Shawl" and her performance as the Ayah in "The Green Goddess" fulfills the promist of her early appearances.
