Since the song of the day brought up the subject, the Wilhelm Scream is a stock sound effect used in a vast amount of movies. It was first used in the 1951 film Distant Drums when a man was bitten and dragged under the water by an alligator. However, it gets its name from a character named Private Wilhelm in the 1953 western titled The Charge at Feather River when he is shot in the leg with an arrow. George Lucas is given credit for popularizing its use in movies after using it several times in his Star Wars films. To hear it check out this compilation video, after listening to the song of the day of course.
