The Gut-wrenching Scream And Fall Into Distance is a stock sound clip of a man screaming for 6 seconds. Like the Wilhelm scream, it is a cinematic in-joke, but not as popular.

Lon Bender is considered to have screamed the infamous yell, since he worked on The Ninth Configuration and The Princess Bride which both featured the scream.

It is also in the Australian NutriGrain adverts; whenever a person (usually a male) finishes a bowl of the cereal he would give the sound effect in a deeper-than-usual pitch.
