Francis the talking mule gets his owner in and out of trouble while he is taking basic training at West Point.
Donald O'Connor's third of six "Francis" movies.
Francis is a good friend of Sterling's and mine, and he's been helping me with the backfield.
William Norton: Helping you?
Coach Chadwick: Well, he's not the first jackass to try to tell me how to run the team.
In one scene when Donald O'Connor finishes talking with Francis in the barn and leaves, Chill Wills is clearly seen standing behind the paddock. He's wearing a cowboy hat and ducks down after he realizes he's on camera. Actually, if you freeze frame that part of the scene, the person ducking out of camera range is clearly not Chill Wills; it's actually Francis'(Who's real name is Molly) trainer Lester L. Hilton.
