Did that cop in L.A. really say, 'We'll run you in as a fag'?
It sounded like he said, "If you don't get out of town in 48 hours we'll run you in as a fag, and that'll mean thirty days in the can." Apparently that word and its meaning have been around for a long time. My guess is that the Hays Committee nixed its usage on the big screen after 1933. Of course you could never get away with saying anything like that now.share
