Sextette is a 1978 American musical comedy film released by Crown International Pictures. The film stars Mae West. Other actors in the cast included Timothy Dalton, Dom DeLuise, Tony Curtis, Ringo Starr, Keith Moon, George Hamilton, Alice Cooper and Walter Pidgeon.

Directed by Ken Hughes and produced by Daniel Briggs, Robert Sullivan and Harry Weiss for the production company Briggs and Sullivan, the script was dramatized for the screen, by Herbert Baker, from Mae West's final stage performance play Sextette, later renamed "Sextet," which West herself had originally written (based on a story idea by Charlotte Francis) and performed on stage in 1961. Costumes were designed by Edith Head.

Filmed at Paramount Studios, Sextette was Mae West's final film, as well as that of Walter Pidgeon and Keith Moon. Featured were cameos by Rona Barrett, Regis Philbin and George Raft, all of whom appeared as themselves. The film turned out to be a major box office bomb, grossing just $50,000 against an estimated budget between $4�8 million.
