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.

The third in the FRANCIS THE TALKING MULE series is yet another ordinary affair, with nothing much to recommend in it. The setting is military school, with Francis missing in action far too much of the time, as well as most of the laughs, apparently. The only thing interesting for me was spotting a very young Leonard Nimoy as a cadet late into the film.
It's a shame that more entertainment was not accomplished with this formula, as Donald O'Connor and his jabbering jackass had the potential for being an entertaining pair together.
