The composition is in a landscape format which is relatively rare in poster design. The composition alludes to flames in every bit. The hair of the character is made of flames, the signs separating the words on the top and flames in the place of the heart of the figure in the background. The colours of the poster are very intense: yellow, red and black. The artist, Árpád Bognár designed many movie posters in the 1960s.
