New Beatles Documentary (Video)

There have been many documentaries featuring “The Fab Four.”  This one is told by a Beatles insider with love and affection.

The input for the film is from Liverpool native, Freda Kelly, who was secretary to the Beatles and chief of their fan club.

The title of the “doc” is “Good Ol’ Freda.”

Ms. Kelly, now in her late 60’s, did practically everything for John, Paul, George, and Ringo.  She worked for the Beatles for eleven years beginning in 1961 when the group’s original drummer was Pete Best.

Freda’s duties included running the fan club, answering mail and writing newsletters.  Kelly arranged bookings and wrote payroll checks. She would even go with the guys to the barber shop, sweep up their hair from the floor and send the trimmings to fans.

This documentary is unique, because, up until now, Kelly has never publicly shared her story.

The film was produced by filmmaker Ryan White.

White is in the process of finding a distributor for “Good Ol’ Freda.”  Several sources say the documentary may eventually show up on TV.  Stay tuned.

White secured rights to four Beatles songs that are included in the film.  The tunes include “I Saw Her Standing There”, “Love Me Do”, “I Feel Fine”, and “I Will.”

Here’s one of them.
