Juke Box Jenny (also known as Fifty Million Nickels)[1] is a 1942 film directed by Harold Young and starring Ken Murray, Harriet Hilliard, Iris Adrian, and Donald Douglas. The film is a musical comedy with songs performed by Charlie Barnet and his Orchestra, The King's Men, Wingy Manone and his Orchestra, The Milt Herth Trio, and The Eddie Beal Trio.[2] The songs include "Fifty Million Nickels Can't Be Wrong", "Swing to Mother Goose", "Tiger Rag", "Macumba", and others.[3]


Roger Wadsworth, owner of a record company, is pressured by Mrs. Horton, a major stock holder in the company and mother of his fiancé Genevieve, to only produce recordings of classical music. Romantic complications follow with the involvement of his top salesman, Malcolm Hammond, who wants the company to produce jazz records, and a torch singer, Jinx Corey[4]




A New York Times review on 17 April 1942 described the movie as "a series of musical shorts strung out to feature-length [...] by means of a feeble yarn." [5]
