Reservoir Dogs Easter Egg - Willhelm Scream!

Turn to the scene where Mr. Pink is describing how he got away from the cops near the beginning. As he's running from them, the infamous Willhelm Scream can be heard by someone as Mr. Pink shoves him out of the way. The Willhelm scream is used in a lot of other movies. It's often put in there as almost a joke by the sound people.

The Wilhelm scream was recorded for "Distant Drums" in 1951, for a man being bitten by an alligator and dragged underwater. It was used for several natives being shot earlier in the film as well. "Charge at Feather River" came later. Ralph Brooke played Pvt. Wilhelm, and the scream was used for his character getting an arrow in the leg - but it was not his actual scream. Ben Burtt, the Star Wars Sound Designer, named the scream after Brooke's character... and has used it as a "sound signature." A small group of sound editors, including myself, Richard Anderson, Mark Mangini, Chris Boyes, and a few others continue to use it as well. I have a growing list of Wilhelm appearances on my website: http://www.HollywoodLostAndFound.net/wilhelm - take a look! - Steve Lee
