Quotes from the cast

I'm curious as hell to see what this is going to look like with all the stuff we are supposed to be imagining in our minds actually put in the film.
Kyle MacLachlan, actor (Paul)

I'm awed by the newness of it, coming into a movie having never done one before. Then again, I'm an old friend of Paul's. I feel like I know him. In a sense, I am him.
Kyle MacLachlan, actor (Paul)

I mean, as a fan, I've been waiting for this for years. Now, as an actor, I want to make sure that Paul Atreides is everything that a Dune fan expects.
Kyle MacLachlan, actor (Paul)

When I first read the script I was disappointed. I came in saying, "I want Dune." It took me a little time to get used to the differences. I finally said, "It's not going to be Dune by Frank Herbert. It's going to be Dune by Frank Herbert, adapted by David Lynch, put on film and conveyed by actors.
Kyle MacLachlan, actor (Paul)

Wearing the stillsuits in the desert was the next best thing to dying. Everett McGill, actor (Stilgar)

I only came close to passing out once... I think. Paul Smith, actor (Rabban)

The Bene Gesserit

Muad'dib and Feyd

It's an absolutely giant playpen. A serious playpen, but a playpen nonetheless.
Francesca Annis, actress (Jessica)

This is the dirtiest job I've ever had... and that includes construction work.
Sting, actor (Feyd)

I was down there five weeks. It seemed like five years.
Sting, actor (Feyd)

I think David (Lynch) likes the Harkonnens, who are the most hideous band in the film. I think he likes the nightmare sequences. The movie should reflect that. It'll be a world in sheep's clothing. That suits me.
Sting, actor (Feyd)

Feyd is evil... with a large jockstrap.
Sting, actor (Feyd)

David's vision is very, very bizarre because, I think, he's a very bizarre person. He's not normal. He's out of somewhere... out of left field. The reason I'm doing Dune is to work with David Lynch.
Sting, actor (Feyd)

I think this script is terrific. I can't believe it's remained as complex as it has. That's difficult to do with film. Film is dumb, you know? It really is.
Brad Dourif, actor (Piter)

I was unprepared for the purity of the desert and its elegance and its great, classy beauty.
Patrick Stewart, actor (Gurney)

Quotes from Frank Herbert

Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo) spent a couple of million dollars in pre-production of his version. He even hired Salvador Dali as his production designer. Nothing ever happened. I'm not quite sure why it fizzled. Without exaggeration, his script would have made an eleven-or-twelve-hour movie. It was the size of a phonebook. It was pretty anti-Catholic, too.
Frank Herbert

The characters are exactly as I have envisioned them... sometimes even better.
Frank Herbert

 A lot of people have tried to film Dune. They all failed. I tried writing a screenplay of it, once. It was rotten.
Frank Herbert

 The young actor who is playing Paul? It's fascinating. He claims that Dune has been his Bible. He's read it every year since he was fourteen.
Frank Herbert

Quotes from David Lynch

You can't get a movie like this done worrying about it as a whole. You have to take it scene by scene... or go crazy.
David Lynch, director

I really like our Guild Navigator. He's pretty odd looking. Pretty our there. I wouldn't have minded him being a little odder, though. Things just can't get odd enough for me.
David Lynch, director

Quotes from Dino & Rafaella De Laurentiis......

We spent six year developing Dune. I didn't want to rush this one and make a silly film.
Dino De Laurentiis

Nobody is as crazy as I am. You have to be crazy to make a movie like Dune.
Dino De Laurentiis

Why make a movie out of Dune? The reasons are all in the book.
Rafaella De Laurentiis, producer


Duke Leto Atreides

Paul (Muad'dib) Atreides

Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV

Movie Trivia

Tequila Dune

The label, in the form of a sticker, was used on bottles of Tequila at the wrap party for the Dune Movie (1984)

Dune promo item Paperweight given to the members of a Press junket who were flown into Mexico To visit (and publicize) the sets as the film was being produced. Approximately 300 of these were passed out to the press. The paperweight is about 3 1/2 inches in diameter and is topped by what appears to be a brass Hawk-the symbolic representation of the house of Atreides. It comes with a foldout card which explains this and the original box in which these items were presented. A unique and rather scarce item for a film which has become a cult favourite.

Card dated 1983, a full year before the Films release!
