* It even turns up in ''Film/TheMummy1932''. When the archaeologists find that Imhotep went unwillingly to his death and speculate he may have been execusted for treason, one of them says "Maybe he got too gay with the vestal virgins in the temple." Obviously he means flirty or licentious.

** Also, in one scene, a British guy calls out to a cat by the call of "Puss, puss... pussy, pussy... Here, pussy." Which may or may not be an actual example of this trope, since the term "pussy" already had risque connotations even then. (See ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}'', for example.)

* Used in ''Film/TheNiceGuys'' to underscore Healy's view that kids know too much these days: a class of children watches a video that describes a towel as having 'gay colors' and they all burst out laughing.

* In ''Film/ItsAWonderfulWorld'', the main character is frustrated that he’s lost time running away from the police, and that there’s probably a lot of “dicks” on his tail now. Of course, dick/dicks being the old term for a detective or policeman.

* The word "cenobite" originally referred to a monastic living as part of a religious community. Since the release of ''Film/{{Hellraiser}}'' and its sequels, however, the word now brings to mind pain-loving demons.



* ''Film/Ghostbusters1984'' features the line "Some moron brought a cougar to a party and it went berserk." Back then, the term referred exclusively to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cougar the wildcat species]]. Nowadays, it's become slang for [[MrsRobinson an older woman who dates younger men]].
* In ''Franchise/StarWars'', the style of music played by the cantina band in ''A New Hope'' is known in-universe as "Jizz" (with performers known as "Jizz Wailers"), likely a play on jazz musicians. When "jizz" started becoming an increasingly common slang term for semen, Lucasfilm quietly changed the name to "Jatz".

* The [[ThePreCodeEra Pre-Code]] film ''Film/SinTakesAHoliday'' has a character named Gaylord. Granted, it's an actual name, but no one would ever name their child that name anymore.
