**** (Four Stars) was a twenty-five hour film that Warhol made in 1966-7. It is compiled from over eighty shorter segments that were combined and projected from two projectors onto a single screen. The full film was only ever shown once but many of the sections were later released as films in their own right. This poster is advertising a ninety minute segment to be shown at the University of St. Thomas. It was followed by a discussion that included Warhol, Paul Morrissey (who directed many of Warhol’s movies), and Viva (a Warhol Superstar who featured in the film).
