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.

Francis Goes to West Point is another pretty funny entry in the series
This is the third in the Francis, the Talking Mule series. It begins with Peter and Francis at a plant where they save the building from being blown up. So Stirling now ends up at West Point. Some later familiar faces turn up here: David Janssen (credited as Dave, later of "The Fugitive") and James Best (yes, the later Roscoe P. Coltrane on "The Dukes of Hazzard"!) as a couple of guards at the place giving Peter a hard time, and Leonard Nimoy (partially recognizable as a younger version of Mr. Spock from the original "Star Trek" despite not wearing his hair with bangs and no pointy ears!) as one of the cadet football players. As usual, the funniest scenes involve Chill Wills' voice as the mule and his interactions with not only Donald O'Connor but some of the supporting players who discover Francis talking to them. So on that note, Francis Goes to West Point is worth a look.
