Siberia is a 1926 American silent drama film directed by Victor Schertzinger and starring Alma Rubens, Edmund Lowe, and Tom Santschi. It was produced and distributed by Fox Film Corporation. Made on a relatively high budget of around $250,000, it was considered a disappointment and barely made back its costs.
The Imperial Russian Army officer Leonid Petroff and the pro-revolutionary schoolteacher Sonia Vronsky fall in love. She is exiled to Siberia with her brother Kyrill, but Petroff is posted there and they continue their romance. After the October Revolution Vronsky and Petroff escape the country while being pursued by the Bolshevik leader Egor Kaplan.
