The film has some surface similarities with Citizen Kane: Wealthy guy is mesmerised by "cheap blonde" and sets her up in an apartment for trysts, where she pleases him by playing the piano (among other things). We get a glimpse of the sheet music on her piano, one song is titled "Rose of My Bud"...
Your Office Scandal still makes me all the more eager to see it — Phyllis duking it out with Margaret Livingston!
Not meaning to be too picky, but the song is "Rose in the bud". It's pretty obscure.
