"Tintin and the Mystery of the Golden Fleece" (originally known as "Tintin et le mystère de la Toison d'or") is a film first released in France on December 6, 1961. It is a live-action film with an original story, featuring characters from the "The Adventures of Tintin" comic book series written and drawn by the Belgian writer-artist Hergé. The film is set in Istanbul, Turkey, and is considered by many tintinologists to be one of the best Tintin films. The film was followed by a less successful sequel, "Tintin and the Blue Oranges".

Plot

Tintin, Captain Haddock and Snowy travel to Istanbul to collect an old ship left to Haddock by his old friend, Paparanic. Haddock has no idea why it is of any worth as it is just an old wreck. However, some crooks know the secret of the ship as it contains treasure and they will do anything to get their hands on it. The treasure is later found to have been melted down and disguised as the ship's railings. Tintin was played in this film (and its sequel) by Jean-Pierre Talbot. Dario Moreno makes a guest appearance in the movie.

Book version

The film was made into a book, in French, English and Spanish. Unlike most of the Tintin books, including the film book "Tintin and the Lake of Sharks", it is not in comic strip form, but is made up of paragraphs and stills from the film, some in colour, others in black and white. Today, the English translation is highly sought after by collectors.
