Our Better Selves


Life after death was a theme in some silent movies made in the years after World War I as people tried to cope with the trauma of deaths from the war and the Spanish Flu. Our Better Selves is a 1919 movie about a French husband and wife who are killed by the Germans, and as the movie ends, their souls are seen crossing the river Styx together.
