I was watching an old (circa 1975) but great movie last night on AMC. The movie, 'Papillon', starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman, was based on a true account of an escape from Devil's Island.
To make a long story short, Steve McQueen escapes from Devil's Island and makes his way to a leper colony, probably somewhere in Venezuela or Central America. He befriends a leper hoping to acquire a small rowboat. The leper whose face is disfigured from the disease, tells McQueen to have the courtesy to look at him in his face. McQueen obliges. The leper, puffing on a juicy cigar, asks McQueen if he likes cigars. McQueen tells the leper he likes cigars when he get them. The leper hands McQueen his cigar and McQueen puts it in his mouth and begins smoking it. The leper asks McQueen how he (McQueen) knew that leprosy is not contagious. McQueen says "I didn't."
Well, I've always thought that leprosy is contagious, so I looked it up. Yep, it is contagious, communicable and infectious. It appears the movie sacrificed an important fact in order to give McQueen a clever-sounding line in the movie.
Has anyone else seen this movie and noticed that line?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
