Charlie Gordon (Cliff Robertson), IQ 68, is a floor sweeper, and the gentle butt of everyone’s jokes, until an experiment in the enhancement of human intelligence turns him into a genius. But when a shocking discovery threatens his new-found success, Charlie has to face the possibility that his salvation was only temporary…

Based on Daniel Keye’s classic novel Flowers for Algernon, this adaption by Ralph Nelson saw Cliff Robertson win the 1969 Oscar for Best Actor.

“The crowning achievement of Cliff Robertson’s career”
