Francis the Talking Mule (1950) In 1946, former U.S. Army Captain David Stern III wrote short sketches about Francis, a talking Mule in Burma during the war against the Japanese. Donald O’Connor plays the naive lieutenant and Francis is voiced by the Western twang of Chill Willis. Arthur Lubin directed from Stern’s original screenplay what would become a series of 6 films, with spinoffs, and eventually inspire the television program, Mr. Ed.
