Wilhelm Scream Compilation

 

This sound effect has been used since 1951, starting off in a Gary Cooper Florida western called Distant Drums and famously used in the Star Wars, Indiana Jones, LOTR and Tarantino movies. It’s an in-joke between sound designers to sneak it in there any way they can. Country singer, Sheb Wooley is believed to have provided his voice for the sound effect.
