Wilhelm Scream-Compilation – Extended Edition

(Youtube Direktwilhelm, via /Film)

Cinexcellence hatten die sehr originelle Idee, ein 2006er-Video auf Youtube mit 3 Millionen Hits, das damals schon ein paar Jahre alt war und in dem 3 Minuten lang ausschließlich Wilhelm Screams zu sehen und zu hören waren, in einer Langfassung rauszubringen. Hatte kurz überlegt, ob ich es wegen dieser sensationellen Innovationsfreude überhaupt bringen sollte, aber ey, for the heck of it. Ich hatte über den Wilhelm schonmal vor vier Jahren gebloggt, als Ben Burtt, Sound Editor bei allen Star Wars und Indiana Jones Filmen, ein wenig dazu auf der Star Wars-Celebration erzählte.

“The ‘Wilhelm’ was a scream that was in a western called Distant Drums,” says Burtt. “When I was growing up, I loved recording movies off television – just the audio – and I would listen to films at night in bed with headphones. I became very interested with how sound contributed to the success of a movie. And I began to notice that many sounds were used over and over in some movies – the same gunshot, the same thunderclap – it was kind of a language because each studio had its own collection. I just love recognizing familiar sounds and how they were used.

    Da gibt’s doch noch so’n Ding, ein metallernes Geräusch, halb Schrei, halb Krachen – kommt auch sehr sehr oft vor, von Herr der Ringe bis zum Medal of Honor Trailer. Weiß jemand was ich meine? EAAAA-U

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.

    Sir Christopher Lee, more fantastic than all of us. ALL OF US.

    Performed in a metal opera as Charlemagne.

    Schooled director of original and only worthwhile Wicker Man about ancient Druidic practices.

    And blessed with the most authoritarian voice ever. And I think he’s like 1,90m tall

    The only person in Peter Jackson’s LOTR cast to have met and conversed with J.R.R Tolkien 

    Corrected Sir Peter on the sound a person makes when stabbed in the back due to actual experience with that action

    He didn’t just perform as Charlemagne; he’s directly related to the great Frankish king.

    His WWII service was in the British Special Forces.

    He was an SOE agent, right?

    That he was
