Be My Guest is a 1965 British black and white musical film. It was filmed at Pinewood Studios, England. The film is notable for the appearance of Steve Marriott who started out as a child actor before giving up a promising acting career to help form the successful 60's mod group The Small Faces and rock group Humble Pie (band); and for the appearance of Jerry Lee Lewis who was at the peak of his career at the time of filming. It was released as a B movie to support the Morecambe and Wise feature film The Intelligence Men.[1]

The film was a follow-up to the commercially successful Live It Up!.

Noted American rock music producer Shel Talmy coordinated the film's musical score.[2]

Talmy also composed the title music which was performed by The Niteshades, who also appeared in the closing scene. The recording, released on CBS Records, reached no.32 on pirate radio station Radio London's chart in the summer of 1965.
