Mockery (1927) is an American film about the Russian Revolution starring Lon Chaney. The movie was the second film made in Hollywood by Danish director Benjamin Christensen and stars Chaney as a Siberian peasant who comes to the aid of a countess (played by Barbara Bedford) who is threatened by the encroaching insurgency.[1]

Release[edit]

Mockery received mixed reviews when it was first released,[2] and is regarded as one of Chaney's weaker films of his MGM period (1924-1930).[3] The film was thought to be lost until the mid-1970s.[4]
