  The Crab with the Golden Claws - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Crab with the Golden Claws (Le Crabe aux pinces d'or) is one of a series of classic comic-strip albums, written and illustrated by Belgian writer and illustrator Hergé, featuring young reporter Tintin as a hero.
Upon sobering up, Tintin discovers the necklace with the Crab with the Golden Claws on the now-subdued owner of the wine cellar, and realizes that he must be the leader of the drug smugglers.
The Crab with the Golden Claws was adapted into a stop motion-animated feature film of the same name in 1947, produced by Wilfried Bouchery for Films Claude Misonne.

Le crabe aux pinces d'or: The Crab with the Golden Claws
The Crab with the Golden Claws may not be the most wonderful of all Herge's Tintin stories, but it is definitely one of the most memorable.
However, that crab of tin meat quickly leads our hero on a new adventure, which starts off rather horribly when Tintin is knocked unconscious aboard a mysterious ship and taken out to sea where the bad guys intend to send him to the bottom.

 Golden Rule Seafood - Snow Crab
The Snow Crab (Chinocetes opilio) is caught in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
After harvesting, the Snow Crab is transported live to processing plants where it is cleaned, cooked, and frozen immediately to preserve its fresh-caught, natural flavor and texture.
Whether you are serving the Snow Crab cocktail claws, clusters, whole legs, split legs, or lightly scored "Snap 'N Eat" sections, the sweet, delicate flavor and tender, snowy white meat of the Snow Crab has widespread consumer appeal.

 Tintin crosses the Atlantic: The Golden Press affair
Golden Press decided that the main characters, Tintin, Captain Haddock, Thompson and Thomson and Calculus, would be given the same names as in the English editions, except Snowy, who was to be called "Buddy".
In 1959, Golden Press began translation of the next three titles, The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham's Treasure, this time hiring Danièle Gorlin (now Gorlin Lassner; note that her name is spelled incorrectly—as Danielle—in these three books).
The Golden Press editions were the first Tintin books to receive printed spines—a cloth-tape spine had been used by Casterman and Methuen until 1963—and unlike the Methuen editions, which were printed by Casterman in Belgium, these were printed in-house by the Western Printing and Lithographing Company in Racine, Wisconsin.

And what makes Tintin a true hero in The Crab with the Golden Claw as he tries, without any irony, to track down an opium smuggling ring, is the way he befriends and remains constant to Haddock in spite of the captain's frightening series of alcohol-induced psychotic episodes.
I was dismayed, a few years ago, to discover that The Crab with the Golden Claw was the very strip that Hergé; had drawn for the Belgian newspaper Le Soir to serialise under wartime occupation, when it was a Nazi propaganda vehicle.
In The Crab with the Golden Claw he turned those two sides into a strange, memorable friendship.

 Captain Haddock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Captain Archibald Haddock (Capitaine Archibald Haddock) is a character in the comic book series The Adventures of Tintin.
He is Tintin's best friend, a seafaring captain in the Merchant Navy or Merchant Marine, who was introduced in The Crab with the Golden Claws.
Haddock was initially depicted as a weak and alcoholic character, but in later albums he became more respectable and genuinely heroic (notably in the seminal Tintin in Tibet, where he soberly volunteers his life to save his friend).

"The Crab with the Golden Claws" has a simple beginning, when Snowy goes scavenging in the rubbish and gets his muzzle stuck in a can of crabmeat, which quickly leads our hero on a new adventure.
Tintin is aided and abetted in this adventure by Captain Haddock, who we first met in the previous tale, "The Crab with the Golden Claws." But I must say the supporting character who caught my attention was the seaplane pilot who helps our hero in the throughout the episode and in the thrilling climax.

 Geoffrey Zheng's Tintin Page
Captain Haddock became the indispensable companion to Tintin from The Crab with the Golden Claws.
He never really helped or saved Tintin as Snowy always has(only except in The Red Sea Sharks when he acted like a real captain to steer the ship away from the torpedos), but his passionate expressions(taken from Ahmed Fasih's site) and penchant for whiskey turned to be almost as important as the stories themselves.
The Milanese Nightingale's arrival and the sound of her voice are akin to a cyclone in King Ottokar's Sceptre, The Seven Crystal Balls(a duet with Snowy), The Calculus Affair, The Red Sea Shark, even in the snow mountains in Tintin in Tibet.

 Tintin at the movies
In this 1947 movie, which follows almost to the letter the story line of The Crab with the Golden Claws, the characters are played by puppets that are animated frame by frame.
Unfortunately, they soon gave up and despite the strong determination of Jean-Pierre Talbot who was playing the role of the young reporter, neither Tintin and the Golden Fleece nor Tintin and the Blue Oranges managed to capture the magic of Hergé’s books.
A short while later, with L’Homme de Rio, de Broca directed a quasi-adaptation of The Broken Ear which, thanks to its thrilling rhythm and the presence of Belmondo, achieved quite successfully what literal adaptations failed to accomplish.

"The Crab with the Golden Claws" takes Tintin and his companions from the perils of the high sea to the burning sands of the desert.

He is a brave man of an earlier, more chivalrous age, stranded in a modernism blighted by criminals and the counterfeit.

This marvellously funny episode begins as a mystery story, with Thompson and Thomson investigating the death by drowning of a sailor whose remains include clues that prompt Tintin to investigate the Karaboudjan.
