"Forget you are sitting in a theater"
The "Wilhelm" scream is a series of short painful screams that were recorded in 1951 for the Warner Brother's film "Distant Drums." They were used for a scene where a man is bitten and dragged underwater by an alligator. The recording was archived into the studio's sound effects library - and it was used in many of their films since. More about sound effects and movie props at “Hollywood Lost and Found”.
