Director Gerald Peary is present at BAFICI

Were Archie, Betty, Veronica, Moose, and Jughead based on actual people? Filmmaker Gerald Peary, a devoted Archie fan, searches for the real-life people behind the characters in the ever-popular Archie comics. The documentary visits original Archie cartoonist Bob Montana’s surviving high-school classmates from 1930s Haverhill, Massachusetts; a veteran Archie cartoonist; and Archie experts to determine the real story, which culminates at a senior living facility in Edison, New Jersey. Might a 91-year-old woman living there be the inspiration for one of Archie’s immortal characters?
