tintin live action book

One of the most popular posts Ive listed is the live action Babar domino cards. While few people have commented, its certainly wracked up the hits and started some discussion on other boards. There were a couple of Babar live action books that Ive been meaning to post for a while, but have never quite got round to it.

In the meantime heres a pretty rare find. This tintin picture book, in English accompanies the second live action film, tintin and the blue oranges. Sadly Ive never seen either film, but the pictures look great. Jean-Pierre Talbot plays tintin, and certainly looks the part.

My brother in Law salvaged this copy from a skip, a while back. It still amazes me what some people will throw out.

What a find! I would love to get my hands on that book! I've got The Blue Oranges on DVD and must say it's a rollicking good film.
