Description:

Shivers in Summer (Italian: Frenesia dell'estate) is a 1963 Italian comedy film directed by Luigi Zampa and starring among others Vittorio Gassman.

This playful and humorous composition was created by Sándor Benkő, who was a great master of Hungarian poster art in the 1960s. His specialty was the circus poster, of which he created outstanding pieces of art. His cheerful and playful style was also well suited for movie posters like this one for 'Shivers in Summer'.

The design is built upon the effects of contrast and rhythm. The mixture of photomontage technique, drawing and vivid colours reflecting the atmosphere of the movie, showing a bicycle.
