Freda Kelly in 'Good ol' Freda'
Magnolia Pictures has snagged North American distribution rights to Ryan White's "Good ol' Freda," a documentary that tells the unsung story of Freda Kelly, The Beatles' secretary. Magnolia plans to release the film theatrically later this year.

A teenaged typist in Liverpool, Kelly was approached by Beatles' manager Brian Epstein and hired as a secretary for what was then an up-and-coming boy band. In "Good ol' Freda," she opens up about working for the Fab Four, and also about how that legacy continues to follow her even since the Beatles officially called it quits.

The film premiered last month at SXSW (read Indiewire's review here) and was initially funded by Kickstarter. Watch Ryan White's campaign trailer below.
