This is one of those rare films that were given two major releases by two different distributors. First, Allied Artists, and then Columbia Pictures released it in 1973.
Papillon! Papi! You'll be back, Papillon. Don't worry, you'll be back.
Julot: No, you won't.
When Papillon is in his first solitary confinement, a vampire bat bites him and drinks his blood. The wound is two fang-like holes where the blood comes out. A vampire bat doesn't have fangs for teeth. Using their sharp teeth, the bats make tiny cuts in the skin. The bats' saliva contains a chemical that keeps the blood from clotting. The bats then lap up the blood that oozes from the wound.
