50 Years of Wilhelm Scream - For You Dad

50 years ago, a forgettable Western called, Distant Drums, gave Hollywood sound editors the gift of the Wilhelm scream. This scream is named for the character in the film who gets with an arrow and screams before his abrupt death. Since then the scream has been been used by sound editors in films and television for the past fifty years. This compilation shows most of the movie and tv scenes where the scream was used.

I showed this to my Dad about a month ago, and he's still talking about it. Upon learning about my blog he suggested I put this up as a post. I know its been out there for awhile and covered by many podcasts, but hey. I love my Pop, and he loves this damn video. So enjoy it!
