An original 1973 UK Quad poster for the film Papillion, an historical drama prison film directed by Franklin J. Schaffner. The screenplay was based on the 1969 autobiography by the French convict Henri Charrière. The film stars Steve McQueen as Charrière ("Papillon") and Dustin Hoffman as Louis Dega. Because it was filmed at remote locations, the film was quite expensive for the time ($12 million), but it earned more than twice that in its first year of release. The film's title is French for "Butterfly," referring to Charrière's tattoo and nickname. The artwork is by Tom Jung who did Empire Strikes Back, Superfly, The Right Stuff to name a few.
