Mockery (1927) is an American film about the Russian Revolution. It was the second film made in Hollywood by Danish director Benjamin Christensen and starred Lon Chaney, Sr. as a Siberian peasant who comes to the aid of a countess (played by Barbara Bedford) who is threatened by the encroaching insurgency.
Mockery received mixed reviews when it was first released, and is regarded as one of Chaney's weakest films. It was thought to be lost until the mid-1970s.
