    A Must-See for Beatles Fans

    Interesting POV of the Beatles from the Cavern to Let It Be. Great documentary that gives the POV from Freda who began as just a 17 year old fan loving the Beatles at the Cavern to becoming the fan club president to their secretary working for Brian Epstein. She was the perfect person at the right time do to the job, and a what fantastic job she did. Because she was a fan first, she made sure that any requests from fans asking for Beatle hair, etc. was the real hair of the Beatle, she fired one young girl volunteer who put her own hair inside the envelop to send to a fan. Freda is a humble and a very compassionate person who just lived a simple life after the job as secretary to the Beatles. She decided to share her tales now for her children and grandchildren.
