Oklahoma Crude is a 1973 American drama film directed by Stanley Kramer. It stars George C. Scott and Faye Dunaway.[2] It was entered into the 8th Moscow International Film Festival where Kramer won the Golden Prize for Direction.[3] The song "Send a Little Love My Way" was featured in the film and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in 1973.[4]


Set in the 1900s, the film is about a lone woman, Lena Doyle (Dunaway) who finds herself threatened by tough businessmen who want to take her land which possesses shares of crude oil. Rather than settle and sell the land she rightfully owns, Lena decides to fight and to do this, she asks for the help of her father (John Mills) and a hired gun named Mason (Scott).
