Description

Title: "Charly" based on Flowers For Algernon Year: 1968 Genre: Drama Though a more recent version of Flowers For Algernon was made in the early 00s, this version, titled "Charly" was made in 1968 and stays true to the novella of Flowers For Algernon. Cliff Robertson won the Best Actor Academy Award for his portrayal of Charly, and the film lost to 2001: A Space Odyssey for the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation. While the book Flowers For Algernon is taught in many high schools it has also been banned by many high schools. Not only was the book version controversial, but the Best Actor award to Cliff Robertson was the first time an Academy Award winner was put in doubt because of the heavy politicking and marketing the preceded that year's Academy Awards.
