Description
The background is a black-and-white photograph of a young man feigning surprise, against a white wall. Overlaid midway is a cut-out of a black-and-orange fan-shaped diagram of piano keys, music notation, the printed words "SUN", and two cut-outs in place of the man's eyes, transforming them into slits. At three-quarters, lower left, is an image of a train, from a newspaper or book, appearing to run into the young man's mouth, which is colored lipstick-red. At the top is the inscription "MYSTERY TRAIN", followed by a listing of the credits for the making of this film.
