The working title of this film was Fifty Million Nickels. Some reviews also list the picture's title as Juke Box Jennie. While onscreen credits list Joseph Lapis as the sound technician on the film, Universal publicity materials list Sterling Alsdorf in that position. The extent of Alsdorf's contribution to the final film has not been determined. According to Universal press materials, Paul W. Blackford, the editor of an unidentified music industry publication, wanted the film to be renamed Music Machine Maisie, arguing that the term "juke box" was outdated as the machines were then being referred to as "music boxes or music machines."
