CANDID CAMERA (TV)

Summary

One in this series of comedy programs hosted by Allen Funt and Durward Kirby, in which a hidden -- hence "candid" -- camera films practical jokes played on unsuspecting people. In this program, a military drill team changes its marching patterns without informing one of the members; and several children tell their own versions of the fable "The Tortoise and the Hare." Includes commercials.
