Movie Moments That Reflected Their Cultural Times

In 1987, Dan Ayckroyd did a comedy version of Dragnet. In one scene, he wakes up next to the woman he's been pursuing. He reaches for a condom box on the nightstand. There are no more condoms in the box, so he doesn't have sex. This scene was specifically commenting on the AIDS epidemic at the time. It was part of the "no glove, no love" meme towards AIDS prevention.
