Papillion was filmed in Jamaica

<b style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; -webkit-text-size-adjust: auto;">The Movie Papillon: </b>was shot on location in Jamaica; the prison set was constructed in Falmouth, Jamaica, and was the largest in the film, running an expanse of 800 feet.The Devil's Island and Indian village sequences were filmed in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, and the scene featuring the arrival of the prison ship was lensed in Kingston, Jamaica. Unfortunately, the tropical island proved to be a troublesome location due to unpredictable weather, the plentiful abundance of ganji (marijuana) which affected the productivity of several crew members, and numerous thefts, resulting in the loss of costumes, set props, machinery, and other items to the tune of $30,000. <br style="font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; -webkit-text-size-adjust: auto;">
