Cinematographer. Born Abraham Fried in New York City, he entered films as a camera assistant and was promoted to full cameraman in 1919. A specialist in outdoor photography, he most often worked in westerns and action-adventure flicks. He was billed as Abe Fried or A. Fried until 1927, when he began using the pseudonym Conrad Wells. His 33 credits include "The Man from Hell's River" (1922), "The Phantom Express" (1925), "Dressed to Kill" (1928), "Romance of the Underworld" (1928), and "The Sky Hawk" (1929). He perished in a mid-air collision while doing aerial shots for a film.
