The Betty Mystique (A film by Susan Marks)

Last month, I was thrilled to screen my film, The Betty Mystique, at General Mills HQ in Golden Valley, Minnesota.

I believe 225 people were in attendance. I introduced the film, did a Q&A afterwards and a book signing. It was a great event, great audience, great everything.

My friend and colleague, Molly, was especially taken with this rare image of Betty in green!

I hear from folks who would like to see my documentary film on Betty Crocker, and I'm sorry to say that the film isn't currently being distributed or broadcasted. That could change in the future, in which case I will let everyone know via this blog, but for now the film only screens at select, non-profit venues. There just might be a screening this June. It's too early to tell, but it looks promising!

Hi I'm doing a paper for my American History class on your book "Finding Betty Crocker: The Secret Life of America's First Lady of Food" and I wanted to tell you how much I adore it. I especially appreciate the old advertisments included. Anyway, let me know if there is a way I could see your film!
