A visually appropriate and evocative poster for Katayev's own adaptation to the screen of his 1932 novel, directed by Sofiya Milkina and Mikhail Shvejtser, starring Sergei Yursky, Inna Gulaya, and Tamara Syomina, et al. The plot involves "workers' attempts to build the huge steel plant at Magnitogorsk in record time. The title was taken from a poem by Mayakovsky, and its theme is the speeding up of time in the Soviet Union where the historical development of a century must be completed in ten years" - Wikipedia.
