Twelve Minutes and Fifty Years of The Wilhelm Scream


Fifty years ago in the movie Distant Drums, a guy was bitten by an alligator and let loose a scream that has gone down in film history. After seeing it used in The Charge at Feather River, Ben Burtt assigned the scream to a Stormtrooper in Star Wars, named it the Wilhelm Scream, and the rest was history. A Youtube user has compiled fifty years of the scream in a twelve and a half minute video, which you can check out below.
