As a child, Will sees a silent movie called "Trust In The Law!" about the U.S. Marshall Bass Reeves directed by Oscar Micheaux; in various ways, this movie deeply influences the rest of Will's life. Though this specific movie is fictional, both Reeves and Micheaux are real-life historical figures. Bass Reeves (1838-1910) was the first Black deputy U.S. marshal in the American West, working mostly in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Upon his retirement from the marshal service, he became a police officer in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Oscar Micheaux (1884-1951) was a pioneer in the early film industry who made both silent and sound pictures about African American life. See more »
