Good Ol Freda screams up a theatrical run, iTunes, DVD release

Just like the Beatlemania craze it chronicles, fans across the globe can’t seem to get enough of Atlanta documentary filmmaker Ryan White’s Good ‘Ol Freda. After its Atlanta premiere last March (the same week the film had its world premiere at SXSW in Austin), the doc chronicling the Beatles’ loyal but unsung secretary Freda Kelly, has become a favorite on the festival circuit.

So, you think you know the Beatles?

"I only knew her from chit-chatting at family weddings," White says laughing. "I didn't know her that well. I knew I really liked talking to her but my aunt and her girlfriends all came out of that same Liverpool music scene and they now work as secretaries or teachers or in a shop. Everyone was somehow connected to the Beatles back then but they don't really discuss it. I just always thought Freda was this legal secretary. I never knew the backstory."
