I need some help to determent of something is a tintin collectible or not.

This is the case: I found someone that is selling a complete collection of 35MM Dia/movie stills from a tintin movie he refers to as "Le Mystere de l’avion gris". I know that this was the 1938 concept title of the black island but I was not familiar with the fact that a movie was made with this title. Can somebody help me out with some information? Because I am not really sure of the movie stills are genuine.

Thanks in advance

I think this is probably the one of the "Films Fixé" series by Les Beaux Films. Basically it's stills taken from the album - so it'll be from the first version of The Black Island, put together on 35mm film to be run through a projector. It's a genuine product, I imagine, but it's not an animated or live action film, rather more like a slideshow.

Thank you for your response! I did some more research on the object for sale and the brand name Les Beaux Films is on the boxes! The seller says that they are for a “magical lantern” so it must be the object you described. The name still puzzles me because Le Mystere de l’avion gris was only used as a title in "Coeurs Vaillants". Can you tell me what the value of this “movie” is” that would really help me out .

Thanks in advance
