Her Better Self is a 1917 American silent drama film starring Pauline Frederick and Thomas Meighan and directed by Robert G. Vignola. It was produced by Famous Players Film Company and distributed by Paramount Pictures. It is now considered lost.
Like many American films of the time, Her Better Self was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. The Chicago Board of Censors required cuts of two scenes of a girl walking away with a man and the arrest of the girl, an intertitle stating "I left the town in disgrace," and the stabbing in the suicide scene and the vision of the same.
