Allen Funt

Biography:Allen Funt (September 16, 1914 - September 5, 1999) is an American producer-director who is best known as the creator and host of Candid Camera from 1951-1954 and 1960-1966 on CBS. He began the show on radio as Candid Microphone on ABC radio and soon experimented with a visual version by doing a series of theatrical short films also known as Candid Microphone. These film shorts served as a springboard for his entrance into television.

During the 1970s, he made two documentary features: What Do You Say to a Naked Lady? (1970) and Money Talks (1972).

In the 1980s, Funt produced a series of adult-oriented videos called Candid Candid Camera featuring nude women in various scenarios.

Funt achieved a BA in Fine Arts from Cornell University in 1934 and studied business administration at Columbia University.

Following a stroke, he died in Pebble Beach, California in 1999.

Candid Camera is currently hosted by Allen's son Peter Funt.
