Comments: Archie, Jughead, and Reggie have a band and they play the last dance of the school year. Now things for Archie start rolling when he goes against the rules. Archie can be a rebel. So a music DJ likes his singing and it does go right to Archie’s head just not totally.
The settings all look authentic for 1955. The style of clothing worn fits in with the time. The time period itself comes across as dull. The only thing somewhat exciting is the music from Archie.
Archie does love soul music. Archie is following his dream to become a famous musician. Veronica steps up to help him. His friends support him but she goes that extra step because she can.
Overall the issue is slow and boring. Archie moves around town a bit going from one place to another. He does come up with a plan just he has no way to accomplish it.
Veronica and Betty both look cute in this time period.
