With Europeans' help, the Chinese had already figured out sex sells - especially when it comes to beer products. BeiPing is an old name for BeiJing. Five Star is a brand of Beer. The lady wearing fancy designer stockings and Chinese dress (pronounced "chi-pao"); is neither holding a beer nor appearing to be in a bar. In fact, the background suggests that she's in a large living room, sitting crossed legged on an upholstered chair, she is looking away. Observe the little Peking dog sitting by her chair. The glamour this poster exudes brings people back to the glittering Hollywood in the 1930s.
