Soundie: Jumpin' At The Jukebox

Picture of Jumpin' At The Jukebox

Today's Soundie is called "Jumpin' At The Jukebox" by Al Donahue and His Orchestra.  This catchy little song was released on December 6, 1943 to be played in Panorams all across the United States, but this was originally filmed in 1941 by a company called Phonovue Productions.  Phonovue Productions was later purchased by Soundies in 1943 and their clips were rebranded with the Soundies logo overlay to start off the film.

The vocalist is named Dee Keating who eventually went on to become the female lead with Ray Anthony's Orchestra.  Actually, she also ended up marrying Ray Anthony as well. 

I just love the fact that the producers decided to stick Keating into a hollowed out Panoram cabinet to sing her song.  The song is a little bit silly, but then again, most catchy songs are.  Enjoy!
