Did you know about the Wilhelm Scream?

Wilhelm Scream Jorgen Sundberg Tweet

If you find something interesting, that you didn’t know about before, well there’s perfect inspiration to blog about it!
For example, I recently saw a tweet by Jorgen Sundberg about the Wilhelm Scream which lead me to a video of a compilation of this often used screaming sound effect which was originally recorded in 1951.

I didn’t know about it but it is a very popular sound within many Hollywood films – including Star Wars films, Indiana Jones movies, Gremlins 2, Pirates of the Caribbean, Shrek the Third, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, and several Pixar films.

Check out the video:

You can read all about it here on Hollywood Lost and Found.
And there is a complete list of the movies with this effect here.
