TRUTH !!
The Wilhelm scream is a stock sound effect of a man screaming that has been
used in 372 movies and countless television series, beginning in 1951 for
the film "Distant Drums". The scream is often used when someone is shot,
falls from a great height, or is thrown from an explosion, and is most
commonly used in films and television.

Most likely voiced by actor and singer Sheb Wooley, 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 from the Warner Bros. stock sound library, although "The
Charge at Feather River" is believed to have been the third movie to use the
effect.

The effect gained new popularity (its use often becoming an in-joke) after
it was used in the Star Wars series, the Indiana Jones series, Disney
cartoons, and many other blockbuster films, as well as many television
programs, cartoons, and video games.

That's hilarious about the Wilhelm scream. I googled it and watched a video compilation of different movies it was used in. I'll be listening for it from now on.
