The Hand-Holding Prologue from the TV Version of David Lynch’s DUNE


When I saw David Lynch’s Dune in the theater (yes, I’m that old), I remember that the filmmakers were so worried that moviegoers wouldn’t understand what was going on, that they had theaters hand out crib sheets of many of the terms used in the film. When the film hit television, it was re-cut to include an extended opening – a painted montage sequence that was not approved by the director.

Here now, in all its painted glory, is that opening sequence.
