Is This What Macca Meant By “Temporary Secretary?”
Yes, they were the greatest musical group of all time. I have posted many great stories about The Beatles, but this is revelatory – they not only left a legacy of the world’s best music: they had a Secretary!
And not just any secretary: this young woman – who handled fan mail, schedules and so much more for The Fab Four – this secretary not only took care of The Beatles – she also kept the band’s secrets for 50 years! Until now…with The Beatles permission, someone has finally told the story of The Fab Four’s most loyal employee!
Meet Freda Kelly!
Good Ol’ Freda!
What an amazing new documentary! It’s the story of The Beatles, and their most loyal employee – Freda Kelly! For Beatles fans, this is a revelatory new chapter int he story of the band!
Check out this trailer!
Here’s the official release about the film, which is rolling out in limited release across the country….
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.
The Beatles Most Loyal Employee!
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!
The Beatles By Bus!
I can’t wait to see this new film to find out exactly why The Beatles were on a bus! There are some terrific new pictures being released to promote this documentary – a treasure trove for Beatle fans!
Paul and Ringo Approve!
In “Good Ol’ Freda”, Freda tells her stories for the first time in 50 years. One of few documentaries 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 world of music.
Because Paul and Ringo approve of the film, it actually includes original Beatles music – which has to make it much more valuable as a band document…especially as Freda opens up 50 years after working for the world’s great band…
This is great news for fans of The Beatles! I cannot wait to see this movie! Leave a comment and let me know what you think!
