Slang help

I just want to check a couple of words (there will probably be more in future):

Was "sweet" (as in "cool") in common usage in the '70s?

Was "perv" or "pervert" in common usage in the '50s?

If anyone can verify (from having seen TV shows/movies from those eras or having lived through them :) ), please let me know.

Thanks!
