|Early 1936 GLO-CO print ad.|
“There’s nothing better than GLO-CO TONIX for perfect grooming”, says the actor-director-producer FERNANDO POE SR., The celebrate movie personality made 1930s films like Zamboanga and Giliw Ko, and also directed the first Darna film in 1951. The Spanish mestizo movie icon is also a doctor of dental medicine and a member of the Philippine army. Poe died in 1951 of rabies, at the peak of his career and in the middle of a film production, so this GLO-CO print ad was one of the last project he finished. He is the father of another Philippine movie legend, Fernando Poe Sr., one of his sons with Bessie Kelly.
