The inside story of The Beatles, told by the woman who was there for the entire wild ride - their devoted secretary and friend Freda Kelly, aka Good Ol’ Freda!


"A slyly humorous and insightful portrait of a participant in one of popular culture's most pivotal moments." - Filmmaker Magazine

"Fantastically entertaining ... a rollicking good time! - Sean O’Connell, Cinema Blend

"An engrossing, entertaining, and informative documentary perfect for the casual or devoted Beatles fan." - Landon Palmer, Film School Rejects


Freda Kelly was just a shy Liverpudlian teenager when she was asked to work for a local band hoping to make it big. Though she had no concept of how far they would go, Freda had faith in The Beatles from the beginning, and The Beatles had faith in her. History notes that The Beatles were together for 10 years, but Freda worked for them for 11. Many people came in and out of the band's circle as they grew to international stardom, but Freda remained a staple because of her unfaltering loyalty and dedication. As the Beatles' devoted secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded; she was witness to the evolution – advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges – of the greatest band in history. In Good Ol’ Freda, Freda tells her stories for the first time in 50 years. One of few films with the support of the living Beatles and featuring original Beatles music, this highly entertaining new documentary offers an intimate insider’s perspective on the beloved band that changed the music industry forever. (Dir. by Ryan White, 2013, USA/UK, 86 mins., Rated PG, Magnolia Pictures) Digital
