Does anyone know where I can find a sound clip of the original "War of the Worlds" heat-ray sound?

This is one of those sounds you'll either immediately hear in your head, or you won't know what I'm talking about, so it's kinda useless for me to provide too much detail. It's the sound of the heat rays from the 1953 George Pal version of War of the Worlds -- I'm pretty sure it was originally developed for that film, but it's been used in all sorts of movies/TV shows/cartoons since. I'm also guessing the sound is royalty-free, but I could be wrong.
