* In the bizarre 1934 film ''Maniac'', a policeman interviews a neighbor of the titular Maniac. She makes a point of calling him a "queer" fellow (as in the word's original meaning of "odd" or "unusual"). She uses the word repeatedly to describe him and his doings and the people who come and go from his home. They're all queer. Very queer...

* An early scene in ''Film/YourHighness'' has prince Fabious tell his brother Thaddeus he wants him to "be gay with me and father". As mentioned above, it means "be merry" in archaic terms; but since the movie's a raunchy SwordsAndSorcery spoof, it's obviously intentional; and pairs great with Fabious and Thaddeous' IncestSubtext RunningGag.

* 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.
