The 1960s saw the prime years of Beatlemania. The world was fascinated by the music of four lads from Liverpool, England: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

While the Fab Four were on the rise to success, Freda Kelly, a shy teenage girl and fellow Liverpool native joined their team as a secretary. She witnessed their rise and success, but never once told her perspective. Decades later, Freda Kelly is now opening up about her experience.

  • 4 stars "Good doc. about true story of the Beatles' 10 yr. private secretary and their fan club head. Great early footage of the lads starting out. Loved that Freda had weekly dinners with Ringo's mum. This story needed to be told and it was told well."
  • 5 stars "A revealing look at what it was like to be the Beatles' 'sister' during their rise to stardom in the 60s. Lots of great stories from Freda, but no 'dirt' if that is what you were looking for. Good Ol' Freda respects the boys' (and her) privacy too much for that."
