Home Video Report: Oscar-Harvesting ‘Hugo’ Out on DVD
By Bob Nelson
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Our major home video attraction this week is a multi-Oscar winner (see related story): Martin Scorsese’s surprising children’s film Hugo, which deals with an orphan boy, a 1930s resident of one of Paris’ busy railroad terminals. His major occupation it seems: looking after the station’s clocks. There’s also a girl with a toy booth and a so-called “mechanical man.”
From 1973: Baba Yaga, dealing with a fashion photographer, starring Carol Baker.
And there’s Johnny English Reborn, with Rowen Atkinson returning to the role of an improbable secret agent in another spy-thriller spoof, trying to fend off assassins intent on creating global chaos.
