The Beat Generation is a 1959 film by MGM starring Steve Cochran and Mamie Van Doren, with Ray Danton, Fay Spain, Maggie Hayes, Jackie Coogan, Louis Armstrong, Maila Nurmi, and Ray Anthony. It is a sensationalistic interpretation of the beatnik culture of the "beat generation" (and is sometimes considered one of the very last films noir to be produced.) The movie was also shown under the title This Rebel Age.

The director was Charles F. Haas. Richard Matheson and Lewis Meltzer are credited with the screenplay.
