Papillon

Papillon (1973)

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.

Revealing mistake: When Maturette dies at the end he cannot close his left eye all the way because of the totally noticeable fake contact lens he is wearing.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the inmate is being beheaded in the courtyard, as they change shots for the special effect you can now see that the sun has moved and is glaring into the camera lens and the executioner is now visible standing next to the guillotine.
