Revealing mistake: During the invasion of Dune by the Harkonnen, a Sardukar soldier throws a guard from what appears to be the palace's wall. When he hits the ground all the bodies around him bounce as if they where lying on some sort of cushion. (01:09:50)

Trivia: The TV version of this film lists a Mr. 'Judas Booth' as the screenwriter. Allegedly this was to get back at David Lynch (who was both screen writer and director) for so brutally condemning and demanding that all credits to him be removed from the film's re-edit for TV. The name is a combination of Judas Iscariot, the betrayer of Jesus, and Abraham Lincoln's killer, John Wilkes Booth.

Question: Admittedly the sound on my copy of this movie is lacking somewhat but when Paul is researching Arrakis and Gurney et all enter I swear I can hear the trailer for the movie playing in the background. Am I correct on this?

Answer: No. At least, not on the DVD I have. It does play the title tune in the background, though.

Answer: The beginning narration is playing softly, as if it's coming from whatever computer Paul was doing research on. Like he was watching a movie about the world he is living in, which is sort of odd.
