The Remarkable True Story Behind “Lawmen: Bass Reeves”

Writer and showrunner Taylor Sheridan is known for creatively exploring and highlighting aspects of American history and culture in his many acclaimed works, ranging from TV series like "Yellowstone" to movies like "Sicario." His most recent project, "Lawmen: Bass Reeves," tells the story of Bass Reeves, a great American legend and Western frontier figure who was the first Black deputy US marshal west of the Mississippi River. In the series, "Selma" actor David Oyelowo plays the role of Reeves alongside a stacked ensemble that includes Dennis Quaid and Donald Sutherland. The story of Bass Reeves is remarkable: the real figure behind the dramatized series was born into slavery and, according to some reports, managed to capture more than 3,000 outlaws throughout his career as a deputy US marshal, all while enduring the hardships of racism and prejudice in a post-Civil War America. "I think that audiences today need to see stories of triumph, and he is a man that embodies that triumph of spirit perfectly," series creator Chad Feehan told Country Living in October. "I think, hopefully audiences are craving that, I know that I certainly am. As well as this idea that we're all connected by this universal experience of being a human being, and hopefully that will start to break down some of the perceived divisions that exist amongst us." Before you watch the series, which is now streaming on Paramount+, read the astonishing true story of Bass Reeves. Who Was Bass Reeves? Bass Reeves was born into slavery in July 1838. At the time of his birth, Reeves and his family were owned by William S. Reeves, an Arkansas state legislator, and lived in Arkansas until William relocated to Grayson County, TX, when Bass was 8 years old in 1846, per History. Following the move to Texas, Bass was made to join the Confederate Army with Williams's son George Reeves and fight in the Civil War. Sometime during his military service, Bass escaped, with some accounts alleging that Bass managed to escape after getting into an altercation with George. His escape led him to Indian Territory, now Oklahoma, where Reeves lived among the Seminole and Creek tribes, gaining knowledge of their landscape and customs and learning multiple languages, as reported by The Washington Post. In 1865, the 13th Amendment abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, which made Reeves a free man. He moved back to Arkansas with his wife Nellie Jennie and went on to have 11 children. But that is hardly the end to Bass's story. How Bass Reeves Became an American Legend Due to his remarkable skills, Bass worked as a scout and guide, according to Collider. After nearly 10 years of being a free man, Bass was chosen by Marshal James Fagan as one of 200 deputy marshals to police Indian Territory in 1875 following a rise in murders in the area. Due to his ambidextrous weaponry skills from his military experience, his familiarity of the Indian Territory landscape, and his knowledge of Indigenous languages, Bass was one of the best candidates to catch criminals like thieves and murderers across the 75,000-square-mile area. He was known for using a variety of disguises, ranging from a cowboy to a farmer, to conceal his identity and capture criminals, which proved to be highly effective. Throughout his career as a deputy marshal, Bass is said to have arrested more than 3,000 people and killed 14 outlaws, per History. Bass served as a deputy marshal for 32 years, and after Oklahoma became a state in 1907, he joined the Muskogee Police Department, as reported by The Norman Transcript. He worked in the police department for two years before retiring in 1909. One year later, Bass died on Jan. 12, 1910, from Bright's disease (a kidney disease) at the age of 71. Though the rumors are unconfirmed, some have claimed that Bass served as the original inspiration for the Lone Ranger, an enduring fictional character in American film and TV. Although Bass surely has not gotten the recognition he deserves over the years, "Lawmen: Bass Reeves" attempts to revitalize his legacy and bring attention to his remarkable story.

Here’s What Happened to Priscilla Presley After the Events in “Priscilla”

Image Source: Getty / Charley Gallay In the past two years, Priscilla Presley's life has been back in the spotlight. Between 2022 and 2023, not one but two films were made with Elvis Presley as the subject: Baz Luhrmann's Oscar-winning "Elvis" and Sophia Coppola's "Priscilla" - the latter of which is based on Priscilla's 1985 memoir, "Elvis and Me." The film stars Jacob Elordi as the King of Rock and Roll, with Cailee Spaeny portraying Priscilla from ages 14 to 27, the ages she was romantically involved with Elvis. "Priscilla" is a personal and intimate look at Presley's early relationship with and marriage to Elvis, which has often been overshadowed by the late singer's fame. "It's very difficult to sit and watch a film about you, about your life, about your love," Priscilla said during a September press conference at the Venice Film Festival "Priscilla" premiere (via Variety). "Sofia did an amazing job. She did her homework, we spoke a couple of times, and I really put everything out for her that I could." Priscilla met Elvis in 1959, when she was 14 years old and he was a 24-year-old armor intelligence specialist stationed in Germany, per People. The two had a long-distance relationship for four years, before Priscilla moved in with Elvis in his Graceland estate in 1963. Elvis proposed in 1966, and the two wed on May 1, 1967. Less than a year later, the couple welcomed their only child, Lisa Marie Presley, on Feb. 1, 1968. Priscilla and Elvis were married for four years before she broke off their marriage in February 1972, with their divorce being finalized in August of that year. Despite ending their relationship, Priscilla and Elvis remained close friends until the singer's death in 1977. After Elvis' death, Priscilla had a successful career of her own and was romantically linked to a number of celebrity figures throughout the 1970s and 1980s, ranging from Robert Kardashian to Richard Gere. Here's a look at Priscilla's life after Elvis and where she is today. What Happened to Priscilla Presley After Her Divorce From Elvis? After divorcing Elvis, Priscilla launched her own business ventures. In 1973, she opened up Bis & Beau, a boutique in Los Angeles, with Olivia Bis, a fashion designer who used to make Priscilla's clothes when she was married to Elvis, according to a 1973 interview with Priscilla for Ladies' Home Journal. When Elvis died in 1977, Priscilla became a coexecutor of his estate, along with Lisa Marie and Elvis's father, Vernon Presley. With Graceland costing more to maintain than it was bringing in, Priscilla turned it into a tourist attraction in 1982, which raised its value from a mere $1 million to $75 million, as reported by the LA Times. In the 1980s, Priscilla began her career on screen, making her acting debut in the 1983 TV movie "Love Is Forever," according to IMDb. She notably starred as Jenna Wade in the beloved soap opera "Dallas" from 1983 to 1988, as well as Jane Spencer in the Naked Gun film series. In addition to her various acting gigs, Priscilla also wrote her first book, a memoir titled "Elvis and Me," which hit shelves in 1985. The book was a New York Times bestseller and served as the basis for "Priscilla." She also contributed to David Ritz's 2006 book, "Elvis by the Presleys," with daughter Lisa Marie. Image Source: Everett Collection Outside of her business ventures, Priscilla has also had some notable romances since Elvis. After separating from the King of Rock and Roll in 1972, she dated martial arts instructor Michael Stone until 1975, per Us Weekly. From 1975 to 1976, she briefly dated Robert Kardashian, and following their split, she was in a relationship with actor and model Michael Edwards from 1978 to 1984. In the early 1980s, she met screenwriter Marco Garibaldi through a mutual friend, and the pair were a couple from 1984 to 2006, as reported by Biography. They had a son, Navarone Garcia, in 1987. Where Is Priscilla Presley Now? Image Source: Getty / Daniele Venturelli Today, Priscilla lives in California. Her only daughter with Elvis, Lisa Marie, tragically died due to complications caused by a bowel obstruction on Jan. 12. The news of Lisa Marie's death fueled media reports that Priscilla and granddaughter Riley Keough were in a fierce battle over Lisa Marie's estate, Elvis Presley Enterprises (EPE), though the two reached a settlement agreement in May, per the LA Times. She openly praised Luhrmann's "Elvis" and attended a number of red carpet premieres and conducted interviews about the film. Priscilla also served as an executive producer for "Priscilla" and works to keep her late husband's legacy alive. On the 45th anniversary of Elvis's death in August 2022, she held a candlelit vigil at Graceland with more than 30,000 people in attendance, per Today.

The Real Events That Inspired Netflix’s “All the Light We Cannot See”

Netflix's highly anticipated miniseries "All the Light We Cannot See" hit the platform on Nov. 2, and many watchers have wondered if the plot of the series, which takes place during WWII, is based on a true story. The miniseries is an adaptation of Anthony Doerr's 2014 novel of the same name that was a New York Times bestseller in 2014 and recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2015. "All the Light We Cannot See" follows Marie-Laure LeBlanc, a blind French girl, and Werner Pfennig, a German boy, whose worlds intersect when the French port town of Saint-Malo becomes the fighting ground between German and Allied forces during WWII. Despite the plot taking place during a historic time, it is not based exclusively on a true story. Rather, the inspiration for "All the Light We Cannot See" came from something Doerr actually experienced, as well as an eye-opening trip to the historic French coastal town of Saint-Malo, which was a real battleground during the Second World War. The real-life experience combined with the inspiring and resilient story of Saint-Malo created a foundation for Doerr to write "All the Light We Cannot See." If you're curious about the series and book's riveting backstory, keep reading! What Was the Inspiration Behind "All The Light We Cannot See"? While riding a train from Princeton, NJ, to New York City's Penn Station in 2004, Doerr overheard the troubles of a passenger, which sparked the first idea for the book. "The man in front of me was on his cellphone call - this was in 2004 - and the call dropped. And he got kind of angry, a little embarrassingly angry, unreasonably angry," he revealed in a 2014 interview with NPR. "And I just remember thinking, what he's forgetting - really what we're all forgetting all the time - is that this is a miracle," Doerr continued. "He's using this little receiver and transmitter, this little radio in his pocket, to send messages at the speed of light rebounding between towers to somebody maybe thousands of miles away. He might have been talking to someone in Madagascar for all I knew. For me, that's a miracle." About a year after Doerr's train experience, he was on a book tour that stopped in Saint-Malo in Brittany, France. After learning of its history, Doerr became fascinated by the city, and he was compelled to tell a story with it as the backdrop. In a 2015 interview with HuffPost, he explained, "You walk its cobbled lanes, you smell the tides, you hear the echoes of your footsteps, and you think: this city has survived for well over a thousand years. But Saint-Malo was almost entirely destroyed by American artillery in 1944, in the final months of World War II, and was painstakingly put back together, block by granite block, in the late 1940s and early 1950s. That a place could so thoroughly hide its own incineration, and that my own country was responsible for that incineration, fascinated me." What Happened at the Battle of Saint-Malo? Image Source: Getty / Galerie Bilderwelt Lasting from Aug. 4 to Sept. 2, 1944, the Battle of Saint-Malo was fought between German and Allied forces for control over Saint-Malo, which was established as a coastal defense fortress under the German Atlantic Wall program, per Google Arts & Culture. The near-month-long battle was won by the Allies with the added help and effort of the Free French party and British forces, but the town was nearly decimated in the process. More than 600 of the historic town's 865 buildings were destroyed, and reconstruction took years to fully complete, as reported by France Today.

40+ Celebrity Couples Who Fell in Love on Set

There is nothing quite like a romance between two famous actors. The line rehearsals, numerous days on set, and close work nature are just some of the reasons actors often fall head over heels for their costars. Over the years, Hollywood has gifted us a number of power couples as a result of their professional collaborations in front of the camera, including, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, and Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, to name just a few. For these celebrities, the chemistry was just as strong off screen as it was on, which in many cases has led to romantic reunions, nuptials, and even children down the line. Being on set and in the spotlight in the midst of a romance isn't always easy, though, and while some celebrities have managed to stick it out through thick and thin (we're looking at you, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.), others have called it quits and either move on with someone new or enjoy single life.

A Timeline of Britney Spears and Sam Asghari’s Relationship

Britney Spears's memoir "The Woman in Me" traces her life, from her early childhood to her rise to fame and conservatorship. It doesn't, however, cover one recent major event in Spears's life - her split from Sam Asghari. Back in August, it was revealed that Spears and Asghari were going their separate ways after one year of marriage. The two met in 2016 on the set of the pop star's music video for "Slumber Party," and in her memoir, Spears writes that she knew she wanted Asghari in her life "immediately." Just two months before Spears's 13-year conservatorship was terminated in November 2021, the longtime couple announced their engagement on Instagram. "I can't f*cking believe it 💍💍💍💍💍💍❣️!!!!!!," the singer captioned a video featuring her custom diamond engagement ring. On April 11, 2022, Spears and Asghari announced that they were expecting their first child together. The latter spoke about the pregnancy on Instagram, writing, "Fatherhood is something i have always looked forward to and i don't take lightly. It is the most important job i will ever do." A month after their announcement, though, the couple shared that they experienced a pregnancy loss. They later revealed that they were "moving forward" with their future and still planned to expand their family. Though Spears doesn't often mention Asghari in her memoir, she does briefly touch on that event, saying that she was "devastated" by the loss. On June 9, 2022, after five years of dating and less than one year of being engaged, Spears and Asghari tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony in Los Angeles. A source told People that the singer cried several times on her big day - all "happy tears." However, on Aug. 16, Asghari filed for divorce from Spears, citing irreconcilable differences, per court documents obtained by POPSUGAR. Asghari noted their date of separation as July 28, 2023. Reps for Spears and Asghari did not respond to POPSUGAR's requests for comments at the time. Ahead, take a look at every big moment in Spears and Asghari's relationship timeline.
