Timeline

It was the most destructive earthquake ever to hit Europe.

1915 - Ben was only 7 years old when Audrey Munson, playing a model for a sculptor in the film "Inspiration", became the first actress to shed her clothes on screen.

(Munson had previously been "America's First Supermodel" and posed nude as the model for many famous artworks.) The film was a hit with audiences.
