He began his career in the early 1920s, appearing in various silent films and theater productions. Bodo became one of the most popular actors in Poland during the interwar period, known for his comedic talent and ability to play multiple roles. He also directed and produced several films himself.

Bodo's fame continued to grow throughout the 1930s, and he appeared in over 40 films during his career. He was especially well known for his work in romantic comedies and musicals, often playing the charming leading man. However, with the outbreak of World War II, Bodo's career came to a sudden end.

Along with his wife and son, Bodo was deported to a Soviet prison camp in 1940, where he spent the rest of his life. He continued to write and produce in captivity, but was never released. His films and performances remain a beloved part of Polish cultural history.

In addition to his work in film and theater, Bodo was also a multilingual singer who performed in multiple languages, including Polish, Italian, and French. He recorded several albums and toured extensively throughout Poland and Europe. Bodo was also a talented screenwriter, penning scripts for many of his own films as well as others.

Despite being primarily known as a comedic actor, Bodo also demonstrated his versatility in dramatic roles. In the 1937 film "Pan Wołodyjowski," he played the lead character, a Polish nobleman and military commander.

Bodo was a prominent figure within the Polish film industry, and his contributions were recognized with numerous awards and honors. In 1937, he won the Best Actor award at the Venice Film Festival for his performance in the film "Komedianty." In 1968, a star was placed in his honor on the Walk of Fame in Łódź, Poland.
