Doors in a 1920's home

Hey all,

I have a 1920's home. It's in lovely condition, considering the neighborhood. However, I have a problem with my bedroom doors. They are all hard to close. The doors (or possibly the frames) are slightly bent, making the bottom of the door come in contact with the frame before the top. Which forces you to give it a good shove with your shoulder to get the top in place so the door will catch and click and whatnot.

Is this at all fixable w/o getting a new door? I'm presuming they are the original doors, complete with original hardware. I tampered down the pins on the hinges, but that did nothing.
Any suggestions?
