- Chani drinking the transformed Water of Life
- Hara and Jessica talking about Alia
- Alia walking through Harkonnen bodies, with crysknife in hand
Thanks to: 'Scott Lanum', 'Wil King, III', 'Ed Balko' for their help.
A short clip of the guild navigator going through clouds to land on
Harkonnen planet. This clip is repeatedly shown - when the Harkonnen's
attack, when Helen Mohiam takes off etc.
Longer Palace scene - before the 3rd Stage Guild Navigator arrived. Emperor
asking his guards to leave and ".. no eavesdropping of any kind allowed" -
Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam arriving and talking to Emperor - she wants to
sit close to the Guild Navigator & Emperor telling her it won't be allowed. Emperor
asking the Reverend Mother questions about why the Guild Navigator is sent.
Short clips between Emperor & 3rd Stage Navigator. i.e. view from inside the
Navigator tank looking at the Emperor. 3rd Stage Guild Navigator has longer speech about
why the spice must flow - because. it gives them accelerated evolution etc.
After the 3rd Stage Guild Navigator leaves, Emperor talks to Reverend Mother
again and asks about Paul Atreides about what she read in the Guild
Navigator's minds. After she leaves, Emperor talks to his Generals(?)
saying he doesn't trust the Reverend Mother because she's Bene Gesserit and to
watch her carefully.
Reverend Mohiam in a ship sitting behind two pilots going towards Caladan
- interestingly the two pilots were the same pilots that took Jessica & Paul
to be killed in the Desert.
Paul checking his computer regarding Arrakis before Thuffir, Gurney, and
Yueh arrives.. there were more subjects talked about... plants, etc.
Voice over explaining who Thuffir, Gurney & Yueh are. I can understand
why they took this out - while the narration is going on, the 3 just stood
there like idiots waiting for Paul to turn.
Paul's conversation with Dr. Yueh is longer - mention of the static
electricity in the desert making shields useless... South Polar Regions
Paul fighting the fighter robot is longer - with Gurney commenting to Yueh
how his moves were not once he trained Paul nor did Thuffir.. then
commenting on how it's Jessica's influence.
Voice over explaining who Duncan is
Voice over about Fremen when Atreides landed... showing Fremen group
climbing a hillside to look down on the spaceship, showing Paul, Jessica,
and his father coming out.
Duncan and Leto met after they landed.. Duncan gives him a message
canister from the Fremen with the words "Column of smoke by day...Pillar of fire
by night." This was before Duncan explains the Fremen's strength as an ally.
After Paul's close encounter with a hunter-seeker: Leto looks at all his
generals(?) camera pans about 3-4 faces... wondering who the traitor is.
Thuffir Haw at offers his resignation which is denied by Leto, sighting how
his training saved his son's life. They all sit for a meeting.
After the meeting. Leto asks Gurney to persuade some of the spice miners
to stay... Gurney recites some poetic stuff... Paul smiles... he recites more
poetic stuff... Paul laughs. Gurney leaves.
After Kynes, Leto, Gurney, Paul inspects and saves some spice miners...
showed a scene of the palace briefly. Inside a room... Gurney plays his
ballist .. with Yueh, Paul, Thuffir, Leto listening. Yueh questions Kynes loyalty and Kynes spits on
the floor and tells them he's with the Fremen... Leto pours his water on the
floor and Paul sees the reflection of the second moon on it.
Long shot of Harkonnen ships landing and Saurdakar troops coming out.
Feyd lightly slaps Leto (unconscious) in the face.. 2 guards bring Yueh in and Feyd clamps Leto's
nose and mouth... Leto slowly gags... Feyd takes his hands off... rips a
badge(?) from Leto's vest and feeds it to Yueh.
Jamis' burial (extraction of his water)... Paul inherits his wife and sons.
Jamis' body is placed in a large vat and water is
extracted. Stilgar declares the water as Usul's and is given rings to
signify the count. Chani looks jealously at Jamis' wife...
After the final battle... a short scene of Alia is shown with her holding
a crysknife and raising both arms in the air - dead bodies strewn about.
The scene were she is going around killing the Saurdakar still not fully dead
is never shown - it was considered too gory with a child killing, etc.
I think there was a scene in the movie also removed and not restored in the Tv version... where Paul & Chani's first child died in the attack on the Sietch by Rabban and Saurdakar's ... Paul & Chani discuss it or something...
I believe there was a scene that was filmed which took place right after Paul kills Feyd towards the end of the film. It's where Paul sends the Emperor to prison. His line goes: "I will tell you how it will be...I will marry your daughter, the Princess Irulan, and I shall become the new Emperor.". to which Emperor Shaddam replies, "NO! Only I sit on the throne", and Paul responds, "There will be a throne for you on your prison planet". Paul then turns to Chani and says, "Chani, Irulan shall have nothing of me but my name. You will be my true love, Chani, just as Duke Lito was my mother's true love." After this comes the familiar Fremen saying ("We Fremen have a saying.....") and the rain storm at the end.
Also, the scene where we think we see Mother Mohiam traveling to Caladan with two men is actually FABRICATED from outtake footage and test shots.

Originally, Nefud was killed off, but in the resultant mess of a movie, he just sort of disappears.
"In the stuff that we shot, Nefud and some other Harkonnens are captured by these generals led by Jose Ferrer. Nefud is taken and put in this machine and ends up on a table screaming while the generals stand around laughing about it. We don't see that in the finished film."
Kooshmeister points out that Nefud can be seen standing among the rest of the captured villains at the end of the film before/during/after Paul's knife-fight with Feyd.
However, in those scenes Nefud appears to have scars on his temples, and acts very strangely, did the Generals give him a lobotomy?
