A while back I had a Friday Thought
about the Wilhelm Scream from movies. I just found out it was the
voice work of Sheb Wooley, a man more famous for his novelty song
‘Purple People Eater’. Shelby Wooley passed away in 2003. He played
Ben Miller, brother of Frank Miller in the film High Noon, played
Travis Cobb in The Outlaw Josey Wales, and also had a co-starring
role as scout Pete Nolan in the television program Rawhide.
