The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (1972)
Some viewers, mason and non-mason alike, will purport to find masonic references based on the slightest of evidence. Here Judge Roy Bean and his deputies salute the camera with their left hand raised and their right hand over their hearts. [00:35:38] Is this a masonic sign—with the addition of firearms—or is it merely an all too common posture of piety, oath-taking, and respectful regard?

Similarly, in Pirates of the Caribbean (2003), Captain Jack Sparrow sails into harbour past three dead men, hung outside the high tide mark, whereupon he salutes them by raising his left hand and placing his right hand over his heart.
