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

i purchased oliver the eighth and the murder casebook together on one VHS tape(when they were first released)and for me they are two of the best short films ever made.they just compliment each other so well.in the murder casebook stan snubbs ollie and heads off to claim his inheritance.this is such a funny film,there is a killer on the loose in the house plus stan and ollie think the house is haunted.it never slows down at all...brilliant.then oliver the eighth,ollie replies to an advert in the paper of a lady seeking a husband,but has to be called oliver.anyway again it is fast and very funny,the lady turns out to be a serial killer who has killed 7 men all called oliver.the butler is a psycho(don't miss where he is serving the soup,class)the part where stan and ollie are in bed together,in my opinion goes down in folklore.especially when ollie thinks he sees a mans hand at the bottom of the bed.....legendary.
