On the way back to the forest, Shakespeare's most famous fairies; Oberon and Puck, lose their way and somehow end up on the Warner Bros. 1934 Hollywood set of Max Reinhardt's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Reinhardt has just pitched his movie version of Midsummer to studio chief Jack Warner; he finds out that Victor Jory and Mickey Rooney will not be able to appear in the movie, and is therefore in need of an Oberon and a Puck. Instantly smitten by the glitz and glamour of show biz, the fairies are ushered onto the silver screen to play (who else?) themselves.
