Screamin' Dragon. [Apr. 29th, 2008|10:35 am]

The Wilhelm scream is a stock sound effect first used in 1951 for the film Distant Drums. Actor-singer Sheb Wooley is considered to be the most likely voice actor for the scream, having appeared on a memo as a voice extra for the film.

Examples where you can hear the Wilhelm Scream:
Star Wars: A New Hope ( Just before Luke & Leia swing across the Death Star's chasm, a stormtrooper falls in)
Empire Strikes Back ( 1. In the battle on Hoth, a rebel soldier screams when his laer gun is hit by laser fire and explodes. 2. As Han Solo is being frozen in carbonite, Chewbacca knocks a stormtrooper off the platform.)
Return of the Jedi ( 1. On Tatooine, Luke slashes an enemy with his lightsaber. The victim screams as he falls into the Sarlac pit. 2. Han Solo knock a man over a ledge.)
Batman Returns ( Batman punches a clown and knocks him out of the way. The clown screams.)
Toy Story ( Buzz Lightyear screams when he gets knocked out of the bedroom window.)
Titanic ( When the engine room is flooding, a crew member screams when he gets hit with a jet of water. )
Spaceballs (Barf uses a section of tubes to reflect laser bolts back at three guards. The last one screams.)
Lethal Weapon 4 ( A gunshot turns a terrorists flamethrower into a jet pack, and he flies into a gasoline truck.)
Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers ( When a soldier falls off the wall during the battle of Helms Deep. )

That would be funny, to have as your claim to fame a scream. *G* That scream may well outlive him.

Oh, I don't think it's laziness. It's kind of a cult following. :)

So how are we gonna beef up Pete's Dragon for Broadway? What subplots? Do we see Nora's sailor husband before the end, does he sing about her, or do we just hear about him until he comes home at the end?

Oh we HAVE to see him beforehand, and he totally has a song. That would be awesome. =)

I worry about how we're going to do Eliot, though, but luckily for us Disney will be funding our production, so we'll have all the imagineers thinking of how to make it totally awesome.

I think the schoolteacher should have a song too. :)

Does he get royaltys?

There's a few stock sound effects that bug me. Theres a cat one that I hear too much...and a girl screaming that is used in too many horror movies.

I don't think he gets royalties as they're not positive of who did it.

And ooh, I think I know the cat one you're talking about.

I've always wondered where that scream came from! I thought I was the only one who noticed it was the same sound effect again and again.
