* ''Film/CSATheConfederateStatesOfAmerica'' ''runs'' on this, being a Mockumentary of US History in a world where the Confederacy won the Civil War, and slavery is practiced into the 1990s. In a clever twist [[spoiler: All but one of the rather racist commercials reflect real products and businesses.]]
* ''Film/TheShopOnMainStreet'' is a Slovak film set in 1942, dealing with the deportation of the Jews from Slovakia (to their deaths in Nazi concentration camps). Except for one person who is connected to the Slovak resistance, none of the Christians in the town have any problem with the Jews being stripped of their property and sent away. The protagonist's wife is overjoyed when she finds out that he will be receiving a confiscated Jewish shop.
* CultClassic horror film ''Film/TheWickerMan'' relies heavily on this, first for humor, as the protagonist's staunch Christianity means he is horrified and baffled by the staunch Paganism of the village inhabitants and what this leads them to do -- who are equally horrified and baffled by his religious beliefs and behaviors -- and then for horror, when the Paganistic beliefs incite the villages to capture the protagonist and burn him to death in a wicker man as a HumanSacrifice so that their crops will grow.

* 60s-era MemeticSexGod Film/AustinPowers finds himself being outcast and dismissed as CampGay in the rugged 1990s.



* ''Film/MasterAndCommander'':
** The ship's first officer asking permission to bring live Galapagos tortoises on board as food stock. Of course, lots of people still eat tortoises and turtles, but no one in modern times thinks of Galapagos tortoises as food courses.
*** The (hilarious) reason no one eats Galapagos tortoises today is explained in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zPggB4MfPnk this clip]] from the British comedy panel quiz show ''Series/{{QI}}''.
** Also, prepubescent boys acting as officers, commanding men at least thrice their age by the simple benefit of coming from the upper class.
* In ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl'', Anamaria's gender makes Gibbs wary of bringing her on the ship because of the belief that women bring bad luck, but eventually relents. It's historically accurate that sailors were wary of having women on board, and there ''were'' a few notable female pirates during the Golden Age of Piracy, including [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Bonny Anne Bonny]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Read Mary Read]]. The fact that no one even considers it worth mentioning that she's black is also accurate, since pirates loved stealing slave vessels (they had a lot of room), but had no interest in the slaves on them. They would either release said slaves, or give them a chance to join the crew.



* ''Film/{{Byzantium}}'': The Brethren's entire attitude towards women not being allowed to join their ranks, regardless of their merit. Clara's denied entry just over two centuries ago, which in of itself was hardly a time for enlightened views on women in general. But then you realize the Brethen are strongly implied to be much, much older than that and time clearly hasn't shaken the trappings of countless centuries of sexism by the time Clara wants to join. The fact her low birth is also a strike against her falls squarely into this trope too.

* ''Film/DazedAndConfused'': [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hazing Hazing]] incoming freshmen on the last day of school was frowned upon in 1993 (as it still is today), and the movie seems to toy with the audience's modern day sensibilities whenever it's depicted. But in the film's 1976 setting, it's seen by the characters as just another traditional rite of passage.
** Nutritional attitudes are also not quite where they are in the 20-teens:
--> ...and remember to get plenty of calcium. It's important for pregnant women to get plenty of calcium. (Liquor store clerk, to pregnant customer buying booze and smokes.)
--> He later tells her, "See you again tomorrow."
* In ''Film/DjangoUnchained'', this is pretty frequent. For example, Calvin Candie pulls out the old Phrenology justification for why whites are superior.
* ''Film/DragonTheBruceLeeStory'' contains a scene where Bruce and his white girlfriend watch the film ''Film/BreakfastAtTiffanys''. The girlfriend clearly loves the movie, until she sees Bruce is appalled at the racist humor and use of {{Yellowface}}.
* The 1987 ''Franchise/{{Dragnet}}'' film contrasts the Detective Friday character, who is a throwback to TheFifties, with his more modern new partner played by Tom Hanks.
* In ''Film/EvesBayou'', set in the 1960's, both Mozelle and Mattie cheat on their husbands, and in both cases, when the husbands found out, they were more angry with the men their wives slept with than the cheating wives themselves. Compare Roz's fury towards Louis when she can no longer deny that he sleeps around. This is based on the notion that AllWomenAreLustful and men are supposed to have better control over themselves and respect another man's "territory."
* After the main character of ''Film/HacksawRidge'' goes on his first date with his future wife, he kisses her without consent. While it does show that even she found it creepy and disturbing, his actions show how differently they treated things like this back in the 1940s.



* ''Film/LoveAndHonor'' is ripe with this, but the kicker is when the (truly lovable) hero throws his (also very sweet) wife out the house for being raped. She comments in all earnestness: "At least he was kind enough not to cut off my head." Though [[spoiler:later they reconcile, he never apologizes for it.]]
* ''Film/{{Timeline}}'', despite its poor reception, has one of the most accurate depictions of medieval values in modern fiction, more so in [[Literature/{{Timeline}} the book]].
** It's rather well summed up in the scene where the main party is escaping and the Scotsman (though Dutch in the novel), standing a few feet from the guard, with an arrow pointed at his chest says something to the effect of "Stay quiet if you value your life." The guard picks up his sword and yells "Traitors!" running at him. Before promptly being shot in the chest.
** Lord de Vannes's casual murder of [[spoiler:François]] after forcing him to say "I am a spy" is seen as nothing more than a mild diversion for the English. After all, they're at war with the French, so anything is allowed, right?

* ''{{Series/Victoria}}'': Naturally, as a period piece there is a lot of this. Victoria is distrusted by even her uncle as a female monarch who is felt to need a man's supervision. Lord Melbourne, though a liberal and progressive for his time, refers to the Chartist petition for universal suffrage, among other "radical" reforms, as impossible (all are taken for granted now). Even Victoria scoffs at the idea of women having the right to vote. All TruthInTelevision, of course.
