PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The major attractions on this week’s home video list include some clever and appealing collections.

An excellent case in point is the Warner Brothers release of  “Humphrey Bogart: The Essential Collection.”  It’s 24 of Bogey’s films, on 12 disks.

Lovers of Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers movies can obtain an 11-disk set with their output restored and remastered, listing for about $70.

Then we have “The Busby Berkeley Collection,” a ten-disk set embracing all those singing-and-dancing gems from the ’30s.

And how about “The Essential Bugs Bunny”?  — two disks containing 12 cartoons plus other rare material.  Or “Smokey & The Bandit: The Seven Movie Outlaw Collection,” which includes three Burt Reynolds films and seven similar made-for-TV movies.

And next week, look for the bizarre documentary about the infamous New York City paparazzo Ron Galella, the guy who snapped everybody, even those who hated the intrusion.  Marlon Brando managed to snap back, removing a number of Galella’s front teeth.  The video’s title is “Smash His Camera.”
