The question is, of course, why? Why does collecting Latin American antiquities = being a millionaire? Two words: Nelson Rockefeller.
The ladies in the film specifically say they would like to marry "a Rockefeller"; THE Rockefeller was openly and happily collecting Latin American antiquities, presumably displaying them in his home(s); and the designers of the film set were projecting a sense of new, hot, New York City wealth by putting "Primitive Art" on display. No stuffy old Greek stuff, these girls were set against the backdrop of the "new" collector.
