Baltimore population falls, nearing a 100-year low, Census says

Silent-movie heartthrob

The first "King of the Movies," Francis X. Bushman lived in Towson's Riderwood community, in a hilltop house that came to be known as Bushmanor. Sadly, most of his films -- save for the 1925 "Ben-Hur," from which the above still was taken -- have been lost or long forgotten. Still, he did pose for the statue of Cecil Calvert outside Baltimore's Mitchell Courthouse. Advantage: OK, Denver gets this one.
