Storyline

In this live-action adaptation of the comic, Professor Calculus has just written a book called "The Earth is Starving". He appears on television to appeal to the scientists of the world to work towards a solution to the hunger problem. Soon afterwards, he receives a package from a Spanish professor, Antenor Zalamea, which contains a blue orange that can be grown in desert soil. Calculus travels to Spain, but a criminal emir who wants the discovery for himself kidnaps both professors. Tintin and Captain Haddock come to the rescue with the help of some local children.

Trivia

The castle of Marlinspike (Moulinsard in French) is based on an existing French castle: Cheverny, on the Loire river. Unfortunately, the real castle has two extra towers on each side, recently added. For the movie, they chose the castle of Ecquevilly, which was was at this time a sanatorium - now the city hall. Interestingly enough, two other movies took place in this small city : "Les risques du metier" from André Cayatte (the school is in fact the former city hall), and The Longest Day (1962) from Ken Annakin.

Fun, light comic book adaptation
6 November 2000 | by (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) – See all my reviews

While not quite as engaging as TINTIN ET LE MYSTERE DE LA TOISON D'OR(1961), this adaptation is fun and silly enough to impress most children under 10 and adult fans. Jean-Pierre Talbot makes for an athletic Tintin and resembles the character physically, which is what counts. Jean Bouise as Capitaine Haddock is rather silly and a lot more like the comic book character than his incarnation in the previous movie(George Wilson). The story is typical Tintin fare, with adventure in exotic places(in this case Valencia, Spain) and over the top bad guys. For those of you not familiar with Tintin, let's just say that every French speaking child(and most European children) under the age of 14 has been thrilled by his comic book adventures for over half a century. In this film we find our heroes and their friend Professeur Tournesol going to Spain to investigate the blue oranges of the title. After much to-ing and fro-ing, they expose the villains who have captured the professor and his Spanish colleague. A really funny moment occurs when Captain Haddock finds a bottle of whiskey and attempts to have a drink while Tintin tries to get him to check out the clues he has found. Anyone who has read a Tintin book knows that the good captain likes his drink and will try anything to have one. Overall, silly but a lot of fun, especially if you are young or young at heart. I give it 6 comic books out of 10.
