Now that the new movie about Edgar Allan Poe is out, it's time to revive the Philly-vs.-Baltimore argument over whose city is more central to the writer's life and work. The movie, called The Raven, is set entirely in Baltimore, though the famed raven itself resides at Philly's Free Library. Spring Bank, the estate where Poe wrote "Morning on the Wissahickon," has come down in price since we wrote about it last from $1,185,000 to $995,500—and that was after a price chop of $100,000. It's now "priced to sell," the listing says. Maybe the film will generate new interest—and a buyer. [CBS Philly/CPHI]
