* ''Film/TrailOfThePinkPanther'' did this because lead actor Creator/PeterSellers died before the film was even ''conceived!'' The first half is built around unused footage from ''ThePinkPanther Strikes Again.'' The second half is mostly a ClipShow. And twice this trope is invoked with a new-footage stand-in (once in the very last scene) to connect the material.

* ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' has a professional juggler do the famous routine where Jareth rolls the glass ball along his hands. One shot has Jareth shown from behind, and another has the juggler's hands held in front of DavidBowie.

* ''TheDrewCareyShow'' played with this for its contests where a winner wasn't chosen by the time of filming, even holding a baby in front of the cast's faces to name it. Once it was even parodied when Drew looked straight at the camera with a wide open mouth shot that was dubbed over.

* On the Oscar telecast of 1996, the Oscar for Animated Short Subject was presented by Belle, Beast & Chip from ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''. When it came time for "the Oscar goes to..." Chip held the paper with the winner's name in front of his mouth as he read it out.
** They did it again years later when Woody, Buzz and Jesse from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' handed out the same award.

* In the SoBadItsGood B-horror movie ''Film/TheBeastOfYuccaFlats'', the soundtrack and dialogue was entirely dubbed in by director Creator/ColemanFrancis. The few times someone speaks, their head is either, turned away from the camera, out of the shot, or so far away you can't tell what they're saying, anyway. In the words of the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' crew:

** As {{sfdebris}} points out, this is at least partly because TV screens in the sixties were much smaller, had much poorer reception and resolution and you were only seeing the episode once (no VCR or DVD). It was much easier to get away with this sort of thing back then.

* Parodied in one of the FiveSecondFilms' in their first compilation. They were in a competition to produce a short film based on the words 'My eyes are killing me'. Other groups in these would normally make the film beforehand and shove the words in somewhere, but one of their short sketches had one character obviously covering his face with a cup to say the phrase where it really didn't fit.

** Earlier, ''BillAndTedsExcellentAdventure'' did the same thing with Rufus's amazing guitar solo at the end of the film.

* The movie ''GameOfDeath'': Bruce Lee died before the filming of the movie finished, but he did film some wicked fight scenes. So, the guys making the movie finished it anyway and used this technique, along with any other technique to obscure the stand-in's face (even a cardboard cutout of Bruce Lee's face when the character is seen through a mirror).

* Similarly, ''{{Gladiator}}'' did this when OliverReed died during filming, along with lots of CGI and some screenplay changes (Proximo was supposed to be one of the "carriers" in the final scene).

* In TheGodfatherPartII, Fredo answers a mysterious phone call late at night; his mouth is almost completely obscured by the mouthpiece of the telephone. In the director's commentary, Creator/FrancisFordCoppola explains that the dialogue was re-worked between shooting and final cut, but because he had shot the scene in this fashion, they were able to drop it in seamlessly rather than waste time re-shooting the scene.

* The old sitcom ''ThePattyDukeShow'' had Patty Duke play a double role as "identical cousins". Whenever the two needed to interact, one was played by Ms. Duke, and the other by the back of a stand-in's head.
