"Ryan White's affectionate documentary GOOD OL' FREDA taps into the tender roots of the Beatles' radiant run, viewed through the recollections of an unsung member of their organization..."
This documentary explores the life of Freda Kelly, a run-of-the-mill Liverpudlian teen who happened to be hired to be a secretary for The Beatles just before they rose to international fame, becoming arguably the most influential rock band of all time. She continued to work for them during their entire existence, and this film finds her sharing some amazing stories about her personal interactions with John, Paul, George, and Ringo, and the madness that surrounded them during the 1960s.
