Tintin and the Golden Fleece was a film first released in France on December 6, 1961, featuring characters from the The Adventures of Tintin comic book series, written and drawn by the Belgian writer-artist Hergé. However, this was a live-action film with actors dressed to look like the comic characters. The film featured a completely original storyline which was not based on any of the books.
The film is set in Turkey and Greece with the main characters of Tintin and Captain Haddock searching for treasure after inheriting a ship called the Golden Fleece. The film was later followed by a less successful sequel, Tintin and the Blue Oranges.
