The first movie based on the life of Bass Reeves, former US Marshal and Muskogee policeman, will premiere here in Muskogee on Friday night.

Reeves, who was the first black US Marshal west of the Mississippi, served in Muskogee from 1897 until 1907 and is considered by many to be the inspiration for the Lone Ranger. After the new state of Oklahoma passed a law that blacks could not be in charge of whites, Reeves served as a Muskogee police officer, patrolling predominantly black neighborhoods.

The movie, Hell on the Border, stars Ron Perlman of Hellboy fame, David Gyasi and Frank Grillo and is described as a great Western movie based on a true-life legend.

The Three Rivers Museum in Downtown Muskogee will host a press reception from 5 p.m. to 6:15 p.m., then the movie will premiere at 7 at the Roxy Theater. It debuts nationwide on Dec. 13.
