Breakfast at Tiffany's, for the Asian caricature. Any of the Charlie Chan or Mr. Moto movies.

Charlton Heston playing a Mexican in  "Touch of Evil".

Burt Lancaster playing a Native American Sports Legend in " Jim Thorpe-- All American".

And Mickey Rooney in "Breakfast at Tiffany's-"- It was tacky then and it's still tacky now.

Two movies with politically incorrect movie titles:

THE NOSE JOB JEW (2000) Tim, main character, thinks he doesn't look "Jewish enough" so he does everything he can to appear closest to his ethnic heritage resulting in so-called funny consequences.

JEW TALES (2005) A dysfunctional Jewish family who, of course, live in Brooklyn, NY.

Wow. Never heard of these before...and they weren't made very long ago.

The actual title is Boss "N-word" (1974) . Pretty sure that wouldn't fly today. Or even the poster on this site.

And of course this scene from Blazing Saddles (1974)

I'm not PC and I like edgy entertainment. So this was difficult for me.

Great answer. There are quite a few. All the ones with Al Jolson come to mind.
