Rating: 3/4 -- [Gives] insight into a rare, innocent time in rock history when a scrap of pillowcase that cradled a mop-top singer or an autographed photo were all fans needed to feel close to their idols. Full Review

Product Description:

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.
