Good Ol' Freda (2013)

Director: Ryan White. 86 min. Rated PG. USA/UK. Documentary.

Freda Kelly: the Beatles secretary who was with them from the time they started, all the way up until they broke up. The fan who treated the thousands of fans the way she would've liked to be treated, leading to her nightly rounds at the four singers' homes to have each sign tens of autographs. I thoroughly invested in and enjoyed this piece about the humble stars and their long-time confidante, although the film never explains why she remained in obscurity for 50 years, and why she decided to speak up now. Still, a must-see for any Beatles fan.
