The movie poster is a skillful graphic design in a satirical character. The woman figure in front reflects the typical fashion trends of the 1940s, and she is surrounded by two man of same appearance on both sides. All of them are stealing the next ones, thus the figures form a continous pattern on the image, and contribute to the satirical portrayal.
