Francis Joins the WACS is a 1954 Universal Pictures black-and-white comedy film produced by Leonard Goldstein and directed by Arthur Lubin. The film stars Donald O'Connor, Julie Adams, ZaSu Pitts, Mamie Van Doren, and Chill Wills in two roles, including the distinctive voice of Francis in voice-over.

This is the fifth film in Universal's Francis the Talking Mule comedy series and concerns Peter Stirling's return to the U.S. Army. A computer error assigns junior officer Stirling by mistake to the Women's Army Corps. Peter's old friend Francis once again helps him through his military and personal problems, including several stays in the base's psych ward!
