Francis (the talking mule) Joins the WACS didn't seem as funny as when I saw this as a kid, but the humor has changed drastically since then - still an enjoyable pic.
Bing Crosby and Betty Hutton was worth watching just to hear Bing sing- my favorite crooner of all time!
Looking forward to seeing the rest, newer pics in this collection!
