Papillon

Papillon is a 1973 prison film directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, based on the best-selling autobiography by the French convict Henri Charrière. The film stars Steve McQueen as Henri Charrière, and Dustin Hoffman as Louis Dega. Due to being filmed at remote locations, the film was quite expensive for the time, but it readily earned more than twice that in the first year of public distribution. The film's title is French for "Butterfly," referring to Charrière's tattoo and nickname. ... more on Wikipedia
