Ladies and Gentlemen... Mr. Leonard Cohen is a 1965 documentary about Leonard Cohen, co-directed by Don Owen and Donald Brittain, and written by Brittain. Produced by John Kemeny for the National Film Board of Canada, the film received the Genie Award in the TV-Information category.

The original idea for the film had involved documenting a tour of Canadians poets, including Irving Layton and Earle Birney; however, that idea was abandoned when the filmmakers decided the other poets would not serve as charismatic film subjects.

On the soundtrack:

I have not lingered in European monasteries
Prayer for Messiah
A kite is a victim
Beneath my hands
Here was the market
Twelve o'clock chant
As the mist leaves no scar
The genius
On hearing a name long unspoken
Three good nights
Alexander Trocchi, public junkie, priez pour nous
Hydra 1963
The only tourist in Havanna turns his toughts homeward
The music crept by us
