A narrow-faced supporting actor from Sweden, dark-haired Mauritz Hugo (born Mauritz Hugo Ekelöv) was especially effective in action serials of the 1940s and 1950s, and was perhaps at his very best as Barnett, the villainous saloon-keeper in one of Republic's final chapterplays, The Man with the Steel Whip (1954). The son of a pioneer movie theater proprietor, the adventurous Hugo emigrated to the United States at the tender age of 15. After a stint as a salesman, Hugo became a stock company player and may have been in Hollywood films as early as 1938. He was firmly established as a competent supporting actor by 1943 and, having dropped any trace of an accent along the way, was never cast as a "foreigner." Often appearing in Westerns, Hugo was equally proficient in serials, of which he did at least seven. One of the first actors to embrace television, the dapper actor played an important guest-star role in a dual episode of Commando Cody: Sky Marshal of the Universe and also appeared on such programs as The Cisco Kid, Sky King, Wanted: Dead or Alive, Bewitched, and Family Affair. He retired around 1970 and died at the Motion Picture Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, CA.
