Percy (1971) is a British comedy film directed by Ralph Thomas starring Hywel Bennett, Denholm Elliott, Elke Sommer and Britt Ekland.

The film was followed by a sequel, Percy's Progress in 1974.

The film is about a successful penis transplant. An innocent and shy young man (Bennett), whose penis is mutilated in an accident and has to be amputated, wakes up after the operation to find out that it has been replaced by the very large penis of a womanizer who was killed in the same accident. The rest of the movie is about its new owner following in his predecessor's footsteps and meeting all the women who are able to recognize it before settling happily with the donor's mis-treated widow.

Rather than for its plot, the film is today remembered for its soundtrack by The Kinks (see Percy (soundtrack)).
