Beatles Secretary Telling Her Story In Movie Premiering At SXSW

Beatles fans are getting the chance to hear the band's story from a fresh perspective. The film "Good Ol' Freda" is among the titles slated to be screened at the upcoming South By Southwest Film Conference and Festival. The event runs from March 8th through the 16th in Austin, Texas. According to the Fab Four website, the film chronicles the experiences of Freda Kelly, who served as The Beatles' secretary from their early days playing before a handful of people at Liverpool's Cavern Club through their breakup in 1970. Freda was just 17 when she started the job, and once The Beatles split up she left the music business and started a family. She explains that she's never told her story before, both to preserve her own privacy and out of a sense of loyalty to the band. But Freda says she's now breaking her silence because she wants her grandson "to know what his Granny did in her youth" and for "him to be proud." The specific date that "Good Ol' Freda" will be screened hasn't been set yet. However, the SXSW showing will be the film's world premiere.
