Archie’s Betty - Gerald Peary (Cambridge, Massachusetts)
In this compelling new documentary film, a devoted fan searches for the real-life people behind the characters in Archie Comics, the influential comic strip still popular almost 75 years after its creation. Were Archie, Betty, Veronica, Moose, and Jughead based on actual students who attended high school with Bob Montana, the original Archie cartoonist, in the town of Haverhill, Massachusetts? Moreover, is the real Betty, the original blonde bombshell, still alive? 2015; 69 min. With an introduction and Q+A session with Director Gerald Peary and Betty Tokar!
