Futtock's End is a British comedy film released in 1970, directed by Bob Kellett. Entirely silent, with a musical score, sound effects and incoherent mutterings, the story revolves around a weekend gathering at the decaying country home of the eccentric and lewd General Futtock (Ronnie Barker) and the series of saucy mishaps between the staff (Michael Hordern plays the lecherous butler) and his guests. Filmed at Grim's Dyke the former home of W.S.Gilbert (of Gilbert & Sullivan). The Artist (Roger Livesey) is not credited.

Futtock's End was released on DVD in June 2006 and was shown in Trafalgar Square as part of the 2007 St George's Day celebrations.

The film can be seen as a precursor to some of the later Two Ronnies sketches, and the style was revisited in The Picnic.
