Freddie Mercury’s First Video Footage From 1964 Shows The Future Frontman Of Queen Shy And Reserved

A short silent film clip of a teenage Freddie Mercury (or Farrokh Bulsara by his real name) has surfaced online. The footage was filmed by one of his friends at Isleworth Polytechnic College in West London during Freddie’s first semester there in 1964 – the year his family migrated to England from Zanzibar. It would be just 6 years before he changed his name, met Brian May, and joined a band called Queen.

Online posters, however, are doubting the year, thinking it’s closer to 1969 due to the hair and clothes. Anyone out there have any other clues to the footage?
