Ted Wells was a second echelon western hero at Universal during 1920s silents and he also made several low budget westerns for poverty-row producers William Pizor and Robert J. Horner. During those silents, Wells used his own name as well as "Pawnee Bill, Jr.". When sound arrived, he found himself relegated to bit/support roles as well as doubling and stunt work. Wells re-connected with Robert J. Horner in the mid 1930s. The collaboration resulted in Wells doing hero duty in a pair of bottom-of-the-barrel sagebrush yarns, "The Phantom Cowboy (Aywon, 1935)" and the lost/missing "Defying the Law (Aywon, 1935)".
