      In 1922, Colliers Magazine printed a story by F. Scott Fitzgerald called The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The tale was set during the 1800's and it focused on a baby who was born with the appearance and intellect of a seventy year old man, but the older the boy grew, the more youthful his mind and body became. The story was made into a movie that starred Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchette in 2008.
