Jump into the Far Out vault and take a look back at The Doors frontman Jim Morrison like you’ve never seen him before. Long before he became The Lizard King, Morrison was a university student who wanted to be on screen.

You don’t often see your favourite rock star out of their classic ‘uniform’. Icons of music have a tendency to keep their style and persona aligned so as not to ruin their images to their fans. But here and there, some footage will pop up to show pre-fame rock stars clean-cut and properly attired. This footage of The Doors’ Jim Morrison is the creme de la creme.

The footage below comes from Jim Morrison’s days as a student at Florida State University and sees a clean-shaven and non-leather-clad Lizard King feature in a promo film for the university. In the clip, Morrison’s character is rejected by FSU and also meets with an administrator to discuss his imaginary future. A star in the making?
