"A Film by Allen Funt" is Funt's only on-screen credit.
Allen Funt, creator of "Candid Camera"
Candid Camera proved to be such a popular program that Funt decided to branch out into film.
This is his first effort
Compilation of 21 vignettes
documentary about contemporary sexual mores
as a record of America in the late 1960s, it's invaluable
This was the first of two Candid Camera-style theatrical films to be produced and directed by Funt, the other being Money Talks (1972).
This rating was X rated - Distributors paired it with Last Tango in Paris. At the height of the sexual revolution, this film was a financial success.
Soundtrack: written and mostly performed by Steve Karmen
Jingle writer for commercials
the one for Budweiser Beer ("You'll find you've said it all when you say Bud!"),
which was slightly altered ("When You Say Love") and recorded by Eddy Arnold and Sonny & Cher.
The film's one major fault is a big one: a horrible folk-rock score in which what sound like rejects for the cast of "The Partridge Family" comment on the film
with mind-numbing obviousness ("These are real people you're gonna see/People like you, people like me," as the title song goes). (Extensive nudity, sexual situations, adult situations, profanity.)
The show ran from 1948 to 2004, with Funt's son Peter taking over hosting duties after the senior Funt suffered a debilitating stroke in 1992.
Funt himself did a series of "remakes" for The Playboy Channel, called Candid Candid Camera, More Candid Candid Camera, etc., in which they did more such stunts. (This was circa the mid 1980s.) (HBO too)

All of these reactions and the rest in the film are psychologically fascinating."
They are all the things we'd like to have done on television but, of course, couldn't."
Nudity is only 10 per cent of the movie, the rest deals with group pressures, manners and morality.
"We learned that young audiences and those involved in our experiments are less shocked and upset than older participants and viewers.
College kids kept their composure. Adults got panicky.
"The older people giggle and were uncomfortable
Kids take everything in stride."
"I don't understand our X rating."' "There's nothing in the picture that is erotic or dirty.
It was necessary for Funt to photograph hundreds of individual reactions in order to choose the most amusing or revealing.
