Default The Wilhelm Scream

For those who don't know, get educated:



The Wilhelm scream's revival came from motion picture sound designer Ben Burtt, who discovered the original recording (which he found as a studio reel labeled "Man being eaten by alligator") and incorporated it into a scene in Star Wars. [4] Burtt is credited with naming the scream after Private Wilhelm (see The Charge at Feather River).[5] Over the next decade, Burtt began incorporating the effect in other films he worked on, including most projects involving George Lucas or Steven Spielberg. (It is used in all of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies.) Other sound designers picked up on the effect, and inclusion of the sound in films became a tradition among the community of sound designers.[3] (Wiki)

I know it's tradition, but the sound effect is no longer an "in-joke" to the industry and some people find it really distracting when it shows up. Anything that takes you out of a movie is kinda no bueno and that sound effect might as well be a boomstick bobbing along the top of the screen for some folks.
