directed by Ralph
Strangely enough, Ralph Nelson's "Charly" succeeds as a movie for reasons
having little to do with the plot. As the story of a personality in crisis, it
works. We care about Charly. But the whole scientific hocus-pocus, which causes
his crisis, is irrelevant and weakens the movie by distracting us.

screen version on reverse side
Very acceptable image from MGM. Moderately sharp with film grain, decent colors and strong contrast are this package's highlights. Unfortunately, as per standard - there are no extras (as in none). The 1.33 version is offered on the opposite side of this DVD10 (two sides - one layer) and the amount that is removed from the frame is shocking (see sample below). A little better than standard fare from MGM and I like this film and DVD. Again, the price sure is right.
