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.[1]


Mockery received mixed reviews when it was first released,[2] and is regarded as one of Chaney's weakest films.[3] It was thought to be lost until the mid-1970s.[4]
