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 Mrs Fox Mae Busch receives Ollie's letter, a close-up (insert) shows that the return address is "Oliver Hardy / 201 Spring Street / Los Angeles, Calif." and the letter is addressed to "Box 204J. / Los Angeles / Los Angeles". The postmark, which appears to be an authentic Post Office cancellation, says "Culver City, Calif." and bears the date of "Jan 8, 10:30AM, 1934". The Hal Roach Studios were in Culver City, and this short was released on 13 January 1934. See more »

Another hilarious misadventure for Laurel and Hardy!
In this episode they play barbershop owners who write to a rich widow. But Stan's letter is rejected, and still wants to tag along with Ollie. Then, in a dream, they go to her mansion and encounter a kooky butler and Ollie becomes engaged to the widow only to find out later on that she's a homicidal maniac who's killed seven other Olivers and plans to make Ollie her eighth victim!
The funniest scenes were when Stan and Jitters were playing with invisible cards and doing that 'pick a card' trick! And the dinner scene with invisible food was another one of L&H's comical moments! And Jack Barty was hilarious as the crazed Jitters and Mae Busch was totally impeccable as the widow and other characters she played in L&H films, too!
This episode is for any L&H fan to see! I give it 4 stars!
