Thanks to Jacob for sending this along.
A youtube channel dedicated to Andre The Giant released the earliest known footage of Andre The Giant. He was known as Géant Ferré during this time. The footage shows a 19 year old Andre in France being interviewed and doing some wrestling training. If historical records are correct then that means this video was shot during Andre’s first year in the business and about 7 years before he would make his debut in the World Wide Wrestling Federation. Hopefully WWE shows interest in buying this footage to use on WWE Network programs or future DVD releases. You can view the footage below.
