Olga San Juan,
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.

It lacks the warmth found in the original film, but it is certainly funnier and has a better storyline than the second installment. Some audiences may be put off by the military setting considering that this film is supposed to be a light family film, but it does add some tensions to the story.
Francis the Mule is not quite the center of attention (It is as though the film should be called "Peter Goes to West Point"), but his role is much more involved here than it was in the second film. In fact, the film shift the attention away from Peter Stirling to Francis towards the end of the film.
On the whole, this film is worth your time whether or not you are a fan of the series.
