The 2022 documentary Sherwood Forest follows the story of Samuel Lloyd Noble and a number of American roughnecks who carried out a lengthy top-secret mission to solve the problem of oil shortages in World War II. From March 1943 to March 1944, Noble and his crews drilled 106 wells in a small oil field in Sherwood Forest, Nottingham, England. Their herculean efforts yielded 3,520,553 barrels of oil, which helped fuel the Normandy Invasion and turn the tide on Hitler’s campaign.
The film was produced by the late Gray Fredrickson, and the production was made possible by the Oklahoma History Center, Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, OERB, James Day, and others.
