Corrected entry: When you first see Degas' hut on devils' island, it is very close to the water and not that high of a drop. Dega later tells Papillon there is no place on the island to launch a boat.
Visible crew/equipment: In the last scene where the main character escapes, he jumps into the bay and is supported by a sack which he is carrying. Actually you can clearly see that he is supported from underneath by a diver.
Papillon: We're something, aren't we? The only animals that shove things up their ass for survival.
Trivia: Dalton Trumbo, the film's scriptwriter, has a cameo as a Devil's Island Prison Commandant.
