Plot holes 

In the opening scene, Millicent tells Oliver, "I see your precious Carlotta Vance arrived yesterday on the Europa." Later, that same day during Carlotta's visit to Oliver's office, she says'"I've been in New York four days and I'm lost."

Carlotta tells Millicent she has already seen "Say It With Music" two or three times, but Carlotta has only been in town for a few days and she told Oliver that this was her first time back in New York in ten years, It is unlikely that Carlotta would have seen the same show two or three times in the few days she has been in New York, especially as she indicates that she didn't particularly care for it. (Incidentally, Carlotta's withering remark about "that man with the cigar" is a sly dig at Groucho Marx, whose ad libbing made mincemeat of George S. Kaufman's scripts for the stage versions of The Cocoanuts and Animal Crackers.)
