Movie Quote(s):
  • Charly Gordon: I was wondering why the people who would never dream of laughing at a blind or a crippled man would laugh at a moron?
  • Charly Gordon: Marry me, pretty girl, marry me. Alice Kinnian: We will marry at... quarter past Wednesday on the 74th of November, and our anniversary will happily be... on those days where we both remember.
  • Alice Kinnian: They say, Charly, that true love is letting go.

  • Charly Gordon: My name is Charly Gordon and I live in a room, and I got no sister and no dog, and I am stupid!
Movie Trivia:
  • Cliff Robertson saw more than one TV production he'd starred in turned into hit movies with other actors (such as Days of Wine and Roses (1962)), so when he starred in the 1961 "The United States Steel Hour" (1953) production of "The Two Worlds of Charlie Gordon," based on the novel "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes, he bought the rights and later was responsible for turning that story into this film.
