Candid Camera has been catching Americans in the act of being themselves for 65 years.
First Allen Funt, and then his son Peter, used the tools of their unique trade -- a hidden camera and gentle humor -- to capture the reactions of ordinary people to extraordinary, and even bizarre situations.
The show began as Candid Microphone in 1947, and then moved to television in 1948. It's famous tag line -- "Smile! You're on Candid Camera" -- is universally known.
Candid Camera has appeared on every major broadcast network, as well as several cable channels. Many episodes are available on DVD.
