Fun Size Review: Miss Mend (1926)

Soviet serial in the American style with a dash of German, just the way we like it!. It’s the tale of four California-born pals who uncover a nefarious plot to attack Russia with poisonous gas.

A crazy-quilt of styles and all the better for it. It is a ton of fun to see how the west coast of the USA is portrayed in a film made 100% on Russian soil. Turnabout is fair play, Hollywood has made its share of Russian-set tales. Beautiful, strange and quite often wondrous.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

The Soviet authorities clean everything up. Ha! That’ll show you, criminal masterminds.

If it were a dessert it would be: Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. We love our mashups!
