Tintin And The Blue Oranges


A live action outing for Tintin in the mid 60's doesn't fare too well...

With still a year to go before Spielberg’s Tintin is unveiled, these two live-actioners aren’t much of a stop-gap.

At least Jean-Pierre Talbot is a perfect physical match for Hergé’s bequiffed comic-book icon.

Alas, Tintin And The Blue Oranges is even less interesting than it sounds; our hero’s quest for desert-growing citrus fruit is hardly rip-roaring.

The doubloons and seafaring storyline of Tintin And The Mystery Of The Golden Fleece conjure relatively more thrills – yet for all for the French-farce trappings, both films bog down in blandness.
