Are any of the Francis the Talking Mule movies, starring Donald O’Connor, for sale on DVD?
—Kenneth E. Erb, Milton, Pa.
The first four of the seven film comedies about a mule with the gift of gab are available on the DVD The Adventures of Francis the Talking Mule, Vol. 1. Veteran character Chill Wills did the talking for Francis. The seven movies were released between 1950 and 1956, though O’Connor exited after the sixth.
