Boyd is not in prison... (20.33)

Chuck: Is this a desk talk or a couch talk? 

Sacker: Lawrence Boyd.

Chuck: Couch.

Sacker: We made a deal to put Boyd in prison. Boyd is not in prison. And he's not Papillon.

Papillon (French: "butterfly") is an autobiographical novel written by Henri Charrière, first published in France on 30 April 1969. Papillon is Charrière's nickname. The novel details Papillon's incarceration and subsequent escape from the French penal colony of French Guiana, and covers a 14-year period between 1931 and 1945. The book was an immediate sensation and instant bestseller, achieving widespread fame and critical acclaim, and is considered a modern-day classic. Upon publication it spent 21 weeks as number 1 bestseller in France, with more than 1.5 million copies sold in France alone. 239 editions of the book have since been published worldwide, in 21 different languages.

The book was adapted as a 1973 film of the same name, starring Steve McQueen as Henri Charrière and Dustin Hoffman as Louis Dega. Differences include a section of the movie set in the mainland penal colony. This does not occur in the book. The film received largely positive reviews. The film was remade in 2017, based on the novel and the 1973 film, starring Charlie Hunnam as "Papillon" and Rami Malek as Dega.
