Description

Fearless Freddie charts the career of pugilist Freddie Mills, who became the biggest name in British boxing, a television star in the 1950s only to commit apparent suicide in 1965. Freddie was a boxing superstar at a time when the country was still trying to pick up the pieces in the aftermath of the Second World War. A natural entertainer, he embarked on a successful media career long after his days in the ring came to an end, paving the way for other sports stars to do the same in future. However, there was a darker side to Mills. His nightclub brought him into contact with notorious London gangsters. Constantly plagued by depression and money worries, the death of Freddie remains a mystery. Since his death, conspiracy theories aplenty have been peddled about how and why Freddie was found in the back of a car, having shot himself through his right eye. Could a man who had it all really take his own life or was there something more sinister afoot?
