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.
