In the mid 1930s, he was in charge of the initial Fred Scott singing westerns, which were independently produced and released on a states rights basis by Spectrum (C. Burr took over the production reins on the Scott oaters from Buell).
Buell seemed to be one who would take chances to make a buck --- he did HARLEM ON THE PRAIRIE (1937) which introduced big band singer Herb Jeffries as a western movie hero.
In the early 1940s, Buell was in charge of several of the comedy features starring Mantan Moreland who is probably best remembered as chauffer "Birmingham Brown" in the Charlie Chan series. In 1938, Buell was responsible for a film that remains unique in Hollywood history.
