    The late great Ron Moody. His performance in Oliver! puts a smile on my face everytime I think about his performance. Also I think Gene Wilder for The Producers should have been here rather than supporting. He was the Co Lead to that movie

    Bates, though O’Toole is sensational as well. Arkin and Moody are fine. Robertson is kind of an embarrassment.

    How’d Cliff Robertson win?

    What was the analysis? It always seems so odd.

    In 1968, Peter O’Toole was considered the Best Actor front runner for his third nomination in The Lion in Winter. Yet, Cliff Robertson won for Charly, which upon release Time magazine reviewer had dubbed, “an odd little movie about mental retardation and the dangers of all-conquering science, done with a dash of whimsy.” This win became the first to be openly criticized as being bought instead of deserved.

    After the ceremony Time continued its assault on the film version of the classic short story “Flowers for Algernon” in a lengthy article claiming that Robertson’s victory was the result of advertising and promotion. In interviews responding to the controversy, Robertson himself credited the double page, gatefold ads in Daily Variety as having the greatest impact on the voting.
