Tripod Media is thrilled to announce the world premiere of GOOD OL’ FREDA at the prestigious SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX.  GOOD OL’ FREDA is a documentary feature about Freda Kelly, the Beatles' trusted secretary and friend throughout their rise to fame. 

Freda was just a 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.

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 both the Beatles’ devoted secretary and the national fan club secretary, Freda was there as history unfolded; she was witness to the evolution – advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges – of the greatest band in history.

In GOOD OL’ FREDA, Freda tells her stories for the first time in 50 years. The film includes a never before seen archive of Beatles photographs and offers an insider perspective on the beloved band that changed the music industry.

GOOD OL’ FREDA is directed by Ryan White and produced by Kathy McCabe and Ryan White.

Screenings dates and times are forthcoming.
