Has anyone else noticed the two, very, very brief early video clips shown in this documentary during the section on Zandra Rhodes costumes?

They show a 1 or 2 sec. clip of Freddie, shot from underneath in the front row of, strutting across the stage, while the LP ver. of 'March of The Black Queen' is overdubbed over the footage. Freddie is wearing the embroidered black and white jacket which he wears in the KYA alive promo clip (and elsewhere)...right after that another extremely brief clip of Freddie from a live show is shown, where he's wearing a frilly black and white Zandra Rhodes outfit.

Neither of these clips is from anything I've ever seen.

I'm wondering if anyone knows where these could be from.

I've seen some pics on a professional photographers website (http://www.repfoto.com/repfoto/queen/) that has shots from Queen's first appearence at the Rainbow Theatre, on March 31st, 1974 and in two or three pics Freddie is wearing this jacket. He's also wearing the same tight leather pants as in the above video clip, which makes me think it might be from this show. Also adding to that possibilty is that there are two existing video clips from this performance - Modern Times Rock N Roll and Son and Daughter.

Anyone else's observations/ideas appreciated!

It's from the May 1st Budokan show in 1975.

Two posts on the same day, seven years later...not bad. Amazing that it's been seven years since I posted this!

Thanks GinjaNinja on your info...has that been confirmed? The footage looked earlier to me, but 5-1-75 might be it. What a shame that footage like that exists and we don't get to see it!

About 4 minutes of the silent footage was shown at the Stormtroopers exhibition last year.

100% guaranteed, it's from Tokyo. Read up on my website for more info :-)

Thanks, Sir...Looking closer now (and on your site), I can see that Freddie's hair is in that Japan '75 puffy fro sort of style...Shame that the footage is silent.
