So here I am again, reviewing a live action Tintin movie from the 1960s, this time Tintin and the Blue Oranges from 1964.
Yes, three years later and a sequel (of sorts) was made, with Tintin still played by a (slightly older) Jean-Pierre Talbot, but much of the rest of the cast changing. More on some of that later. Let's start with the plot.
On this occasion, Professor Calculus dreams of ending world hunger, a task aided by by the discovery of a desert-proof blue orange that's been created by Professor Zalamea in Spain. But the 'orange' sent over by the Spanish professor is stolen, leading to a Spanish trek for Tintin, Snowy, Calculus and Haddock to find out what's going on. Not long after they arrive, both professors are kidnapped and taken to a secret lab - and it's up to Tintin and the Captain to once again, save the day. Will they? I think you know the answer to that.
