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.Written by

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.

Around 01:13:38, Tintin is rising up suitcase's antenna. On the next shot, Tintin is closing the suitcase but the antenna is already turned down. See more »
My main idea is 5 but usually my scores are higher than what I think . Electing actors like Talbot as Tin Tin was so smart but this movie could be better than this . I think the wanted to show it comedy but It was'nt comedy ! I think the movie was ok .
