The large picture shows a stylishly-coiffed lady, identified as actress Tammy Grimes, pondering a lit Tiparillo that has been placed in front of her by a male hand. Her expression is a puzzle; it shows a little bit of anger and a bit of insult yet her lips seem to be parting just a bit as the pearly-tip sits just inches away. The text reasons that "It all depends on the lady. If she happens to be the high-spirited type, she'll probably offer you one". The text mentions that many of the hostesses of 1964 are filling their silver cigarette boxes up with Tiparillos and, as far as should you offer a Tiparillo to Tammy Grimes, the ad wonders "will she call you an ol' coward if you don't?".
