Here is a scream sound effect that has been used in hundreds of movies – really! It was named the Wilhelm Scream after a character in 1953 western The Charge at Feather River, when a soldier named Pvt. Wilhelm (Ralph Brooke) gets shot in the leg by an arrow. First used in 1951 for the film Distant Drums, actor-singer Sheb Wooley is considered to be the most likely voice actor for the scream.
It’s a favorite of sci-fi, westerns, horror, animated films, and even video games.
How many of these movies can you name?
