LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Allen Funt, who created and hosted the hit television show ``Candid Camera'' and built it into a nearly 50-year career in Hollywood, has died at age 84, family members said Monday.

Funt, who gained fame as host of ``Candid Radio'' in 1947 and was still hosting ``Candid Camera'' until he suffered a serious stroke in 1993, died Sunday of complications of that stroke at his home in Pebble Beach, California."
