Synopsis / Plot
Julius Moomer has given up his job as a streetcar conductor to pursue what he thinks is his true calling - to be a writer. He's gone out and hired an agent, Gerald Hugo, but there's just one problem - he just can't write worth a damn. He's continually pitching hackneyed ideas but when he learns that Hugo is working on a show about black magic he goes off to a bookstore intent on learning more about the subject. The book he finds - actually it sort of finds him - is a book of spells and to his delight, he conjures up none other than William Shakespeare. He soon has Will, as he calls him, writing his scripts and they're a big hit. They're not much of a hit with Shakespeare however when he visits the set and sees just what they have done to his work.
