The Wilhelm scream

Hollywood spends millions of dollars every year producing blockbusters filled with special effects, right? But some things never seem to change... One of the most classic movie clichés is the Wilhelm Scream, which first appeared in a 1951 production. Since then, a lot of directors have used exactly the same scream in their films and TV programmes. It may sound frightening when heard once, but when edited (like in this video), it sounds, well... silly! Can you recognize the films? What other movie clichés can you think of?
