Is there any aspect of The Beatles’s life and music that hasn’t been analysed to death in movies, books and magazine articles? It would appear so: Freda Kelly was a Liverpudlian Beatles obsessive who started their first ever fan club before being taken on by manager Brian Epstein to work as the group’s personal secretary, a job she held until they disbanded in 1970. This documentary from American filmmaker Ryan White is the first time Freda has told her own story, backed up with extensive archive footage of The Beatles in their prime. Expect a new insight into one of the great creative explosions of our times, and lots of scenes of John Lennon being Scouse and sarcastic.
Good Ol' Freda
