Onscreen from around 1915, dark, brooding actor/director Raymond Wells helmed scores of Universal Red Feather Westerns in the late 1910s. He continued to write and direct low-budget Westerns well into the 1920s, including Death Valley (1927), a particularly inept low-budget effort from ramshackle First Division. Wells became an assistant to maverick poverty row entrepreneur Robert J. Horner in the sound era.
