ALLEN FUNT, AUDREY MEADOWS, & THE OSSINING TREASURER 1960
It's no secret that Candid Camera's Allen Funt lived in Croton on Mt. Airy Road....
And so we weren't really surprised to discover this 1960 Patent Trader article about a little stunt both he and television actress Audrey Meadows (of Honeymooners fame) pulled over in nearby Ossining.
It must have been something too--and certainly reflective of a different time.
