Ferry Cross the Mersey is a film musical featuring Gerry and the Pacemakers. It is named after the Gerry Marsden song "Ferry Cross the Mersey".

The film, released in 1965 and directed by Jeremy Summers, is one of the more uncommon artifacts of the Mersey scene, shown very rarely on television and never issued on video. It was the first to be shot on location in Liverpool after the city's emergence into the music mainstream (which had previously seen only Frankie Vaughan, Russ Hamilton, and Billy Fury as stars). For authenticity, many scenes were shot in clubs near Gerry & the Pacemakers frontman Gerry Marsden's home; a scene on the river via an actual ferryboat showed the docks as a backdrop. Marsden wrote nine new songs for the film which also starred Cilla Black, Jimmy Savile, and The Fourmost.
