Retro Baltimore: 50 things we miss

Jim Thorpe

Thorpe won Olympic gold medals in 1912 for the pentathlon and decathlon. He was stripped of them when it was learned he had played semi-professional baseball before the Olympics, but they were reinstated in 1983. He appeared in mostly uncredited roles in films and shorts, including 1935's "Captain Blood" and 1950's "Wagon Master."
