The center of the card has an image of a woman, Jeanne Crain, wearing a yellow dress against a triangular black background. Across this image is [Pinky] in large white script font with the dot of the 'i' colored pink. To the left is a triangular shaped black and white film still from the movie of Crain with William Lundigan. At right are three smaller, diamond-shaped color film stills arranged in a vertical column. From top to bottom, the stills depict Crain with Lundigan, Crain with Ethel Waters, and Crain with Ethel Barrymore. Red text over yellow bands next to the images read [ONE LOVED HER... / ONE WARNED HER... / ONE TAUNTED HER...]. Across the bottom of the card is the cast information. At the very bottom left in small blue text is a licensing note from National Screen Service Corp. and a copyright notice: [Copyright 1949 - 20th Century Fox Film Corp.].
On the back of the card there is handwritten text in the top left corner. The graphite writing reads [PINKY] with an underline. To the right it reads [(20TH / CENT /FOX / 1949)].
