CastCliff Robertson Claire Bloom Lilia Skala Leon Janney Dick Van Patten
NotesBizarre fantasy in which a man with learning difficulties (Cliff Robertson) becomes a super-brain following a scientific experiment. Romantic interest provided by his teacher (Claire Bloom). The catch, which Charly is aware of, is that the change is temporary. Well received by the public, knocked down by Kael. See review in Pauline Kael's book 'Going Steady'.
