FACT BARRAGE!: the Wilhelm Scream is a famous audio clip from the 1951 movie Distant Drums. The scream was recorded to be used in the movie when a man gets eaten by an alligator. The voice actor went uncredited but was soon known to be Sheb Wooley (who sang the 'Purple People-Eater' song in 1958) and it has been used in well over 300 movies. It's most common uses are for falling from a great height and being blown back by an explosion.
