Francis in the Navy is a 1955 American black-and-white comedy film, the sixth and last in the Francis the Talking Mule series directed by Arthur Lubin and starring Donald O'Connor and Chill Wills (the distinctive voice of the mule). There was one more film without them, which was poorly received. This marked the first credited role of Clint Eastwood.[1] O'Connor's character, an army officer, gets mistaken for his lookalike in the U.S. Navy.
