BLOGATHON… Announcing My First Solo Blogathon for 2022, The Wilhelm Scream Blogathon

 

It’s time for another blogathon tribute with one that will make you scream with delight… 

 

The first of my blogathons of 2022 is dedicated to someone dear.

 

The Wilhelm Scream Compilation (Movies – TV Shows) (2019), Christopher Cherigo

 

For the first of possibly two blogathons which I’m running solo next year (2022), I’m dedicating this blogathon to someone in my life who would have been 90 earlier this year. I’m simply calling this person “Wilhelm”, as this was their nickname of choice from time to time. So what better way to honour this person than with the Wilhelm Scream Blogathon…

What’s a Wilhelm Scream, you ask…?

CLICK HERE and click the button that says WILHELM SCREAM…

 

Wikipedia defines the Wilhelm Scream as…

The Wilhelm scream is a stock sound effect that has been used in a number of films and TV series, beginning in 1951 with the film Distant Drums. The scream is usually used when someone is shot, falls from a great height or is thrown from an explosion.

 

The story behind this film and TV trope is also told by Wikipedia who add this,

The sound is named after Private Wilhelm, a character in The Charge at Feather River, a 1953 Western in which the character gets shot in the thigh with an arrow. This was its first use following its inclusion in the Warner Bros. stock sound library, although The Charge at Feather River is believed to have been the third film to use the effect. The scream is believed to be voiced by actor Sheb Wooley.

 

Imdb lists tons of appearances for the Wilhelm scream. It adds can be heard in films such as The Greatest Showman (2017), Django Unchained (2012), Deadpool 2 (2018), Men in Black (1997) and practically all those Indiana Jones films and Star Wars movies… just to name a few…

The rules are simple, review a film or TV Show where there is a Wilhelm Scream featured as part of the plot. In your review, please mention where this sound effect can be heard by adding a description of this scene or by adding the dialogue…

The blogathon is running from the 2nd to the 4th March 2022 – and those of you who know “Wilhelm” will know the significance of one of those dates.  Please note there will be no duplicates allowed and I am not accepting previously published posts or derogatory ones.
