Polo, Eddy (IV). Eddy Polo (1875-1961) was one of the giants of the silent film era; he was known as the “Hercules of the Screen” and was internationally famous. In 1926 he was the hero of the Spanish Celebrity Pulp Hugo Contra Polo #1-20?

In Hugo Contra Polo Eddie Polo is wanted for a crime he did not commit, and is pursued by silent film actor Hugo Flink (1879-1947), who in Hugo Contra Polo has the same traits as the most famous character Flink played on screen, Sherlock Holmes. Polo appears in stories with titles like “Horrible Treason” and “An Evil Encounter.”
