Barbershop owners Stanley and Oliver both answer a personal ad from a rich widow seeking a husband. Oliver hides Stanley's reply and mails just his own. When Oliver receives a proposal of marriage from the widow, he sets off to start a life of wealth and ease. But just then Stanley discovers his unsent letter and demands to be brought along. At the widow's home, they're informed by the creepy butler that his mistress is crazy; having been jilted once by another Oliver, her hobby now is marrying all the Olivers she can find and then slitting their throats. So far, there've been seven Olivers. Written by

When Stan is eating the "soup", he buttons some of his waistcoat buttons, but when he walks out of the room, they are buttoned up. See more »
Jitters the butler:
[Watching Stan eat an imaginary meal]
Eh eh eh! You're using the wrong fork!
[Looks and sees that he is, in fact, holding a spoon, which he throws down in disgust]

Who said I was nuts?

Laurel and Hardy short has Hardy answering an ad in the paper by a woman looking for a husband. What he doesn't know is that she's a psychotic who will murder anyone named Oliver. Again, not too many laughs here but the thing remains entertaining anyways. The gag with the hand under the covers is certainly the highlight.
Our Relations (1936)
*** (out of 4)
All hell breaks loose in a case of mistaken identity when Laurel and Hardy's twins show up. This isn't nearly their best film but there are plenty of laughs throughout the short running time. The segments inside the bar are the highlights but I think the film would have been even better had L&H played the twins differently.
