About the Movie
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. 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. For the first time in 50 years, Freda shares her story.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A generic jaunt down memory lane ...
Fresh: White's film is a love letter not just to Kelly and the Beatles, but also to postwar working-class Liverpool.
Fresh: A surprisingly satisfying and moving experience.
Fresh: [A] warmhearted documentary portrait ...
Good Ol' Freda A Great Ol' Film!
Good Ol' Freda is a wonderful, delightful documentary about Liverpool teen Freda Kelly who became the Beatles secretary and fan club president who was there at the beginning of their incredible career to the sad last days of the band, and then she went back to a normal life.
Freda comes across as a very warm and straight forward lady who had a front row seat to the greatest show on earth.
The film has many great photos and music and Freda's story will make you laugh and might even bring a tear.
Don't miss this wonderful movie!
A unique insider's look at the Beatles from the perspective of a true fan and a true friend. The story is wonderful and the soundtrack is excellent. You will not be disappointed.
Just a wonderful documentary! Loved it!
