The Wilhelm Scream


The scream that keeps on screaming, sound designer Benjamin Burtt Jr. discovered the original recording (it was labelled “Man being eaten by alligator”) and used it in a little movie he was involved in called Star Wars. Being a man who liked to rinse the hell out of something and milk it until it was powder, he then used it in every film he made, including all the Indiana Jones movies. At least, that’s what Wikipedia says.
