The second "skoob film" is longer, more technically accomplished and has a single subject, Latham´s book relief "Film Star" (1960, Tate Collection). In an ynpublished interview with Felicity Sparrow, the artist recalls constructing the painting for the purpose of making the film.
Between 1965 and 1967 "Unedited material" was integrated into several performances of Latham´s 'wordless play', initially titled "Film" bu later renamed "Juliet and Romeo", including a staging in collaboaration with Jeffrey Shaw at the "Exprmntl 4 festival" of experimental film in Knokke-Le-Zoute, Belgium, over New Year 1967-68. The tape cassette soundtrack was added by Latham in the mid-1990s.

Lux web:
An animated documentation of the production of Film Star, another work by Latham which took its title from its appearance in this film. Film Star is a canvas incorporating books whose pages have been painted in twelve colours. Because the books can be opened at different pages, the work can exist in different states; during production, Latham would stop filming at various points, turn the pages of the books, and start filming again. In the film, the books appear suddenly to open, close and change colour.
