2640docs proudly presents ARCHIE’S BETTY: screening and discussion with director Gerald Perry.
ARCHIE’S BETTY is an independent documentary search by journalist and filmmaker Gerald Peary to determine if the characters in Archie comics—Archie, Betty, Veronica, Moose, Jughead. etc.—were modeled on real-life people. As an Archie-obsessed child, Peary believed that somewhere in America there was a real town of Riverdale, where Archie and his teen friends went to school. As an adult, he found that his fantasy might have basis in fact.
