Caricature by George Wachstster (1911-2004) of Alan Funt for CBS-TV`s revival of `Candid Camera` for the May 19, 1963 cover of the New York Journal American TView Magazine. The series had gone off the air on NBC in 1954 after its 1948 debut (which was on ABC). In between, the show had run as a regular segment in 1958 on Jack Paar`s `Tonight Show` & was a feature on CBS-TV`s `The Garry Moore Show` in 1959. Its success on Moore`s show spurred CBS to bring back Candid Camera as a weekly series on Feb 6, 1960 where it had a successful 7-year run.

This piece is on 14.25" x 22.00" illustration board, with an image that measure to 11.50" x 8.00." Includes copies of the original magazine, photostat pasteup and corrected negative. Edge toned, drawing is fine.
