Mystery of Life is one of the earliest filmed explanations of Darwin's theory of evolution. Most of the film is comprised of graphs, charts, and stock footage from various medical shorts and nature documentaries. As such, the film itself is persuasive, but can hardly qualify as entertainment. What gave Mystery of Life its box-office appeal was the fact that its original screenings were accompanied by a live lecture. One of the two lecturers was famed attorney Clarence Darrow, who of course spoke on behalf of evolution at the epochal Scopes "Monkey Trial" of 1925.
