According to The Hollywood Reporter, Candid Camera is coming back yet again. The oft-resurrected TV show, which dates to the 1940s, will make its latest appearance on DVD. Peter Funt, son of the hidden-camera show's creator, Allen Funt, has teamed with Rhino Home Video to create a 10-disc collection of the classic TV series. Candid Camera: Five Decades of Smiles arrives in stores Aug. 2.
It contains 44 full-length Candid Camera episodes that originally aired from the 1960s and '70s through the present. The package also includes many hours of bonus materials, including the show's NBC premiere from May 1949; a two-hour Greatest Moments disc produced exclusively for this DVD set; the 25th and 40th anniversary specials; celebrity appearances over the years, featuring the likes of Woody Allen, Muhammad Ali, Buster Keaton and Jayne Mansfield; and five featurettes, hosted by Peter Funt, that put the show in context with the times.
