Motion Picture Director, Producer. Born in Los Angeles, California, he made his entry into Hollywood as an assistant director in the 1928 film, "Power". From the early 1940s he made his mark as a producer, responsible for such films a "They Died with Their Boots On" (1941), "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" (1949), and "Hondo" (1953). Other films he produced for RKO were "Tall in the Saddle" and "Back to Bataan" starring John Wayne. In 1952 Wayne became his partner in Wayne-Fellows Productions, though Wayne eventually bought him out. Fellows expanded into television production in 1957 with "Voices in the Fog", but only worked in that medium for about two years. After acquiring the film rights to Mickey Spillane's work, he produced "The Girl Hunters" in 1963. In 1969 he and Spillane created their own production company with a plan of bringing more of the crime novelist's books to the screen. Fellows died before this came to fruition.
