Behind a great band, there was a great woman

Good Ol' Freda is the story of Freda Kelly, a shy Liverpudlian teenager asked to work for a young local band hoping to make it big: The Beatles.

Their loyal secretary from beginning to end, Freda tells her stories for the first time in 50 years.

"Oscar-worthy new doc.

Kelly is a complete charmer.

Prepare to fall in love with her."

- Atlanta Magazine

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.

"Delightful doc gets as much mileage from its subject's cheer as from Beatles lore."

- The Hollywood Reporter

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, the film offers an insider perspective on the beloved band that changed the music industry.
