Dune Deleted Scene - Jamis Fight
July 3, 2011
This scene was cut from the theatrical release of Dune, but is included in the "Extended Edition"
168. EXT. FREMEN PLACE - DEEP DESERT - NIGHT
He surprised me... It was an accident... I
invoke the amtal rule!
The man with death in his voice. He means
to have single combat with Paul!
But Jamis... you force this fight.... These
people have my countenance... if you should
win I will cut you down.
Jamis, I don't want to fight you.... Maybe
if I explain....
Explain? Explain death! I'm going to
sheath my knife in your blood.
Jessica is pulled away tenderly by some of the Fremen. Chani comes up
very close to Paul.
(quietly to Chani)
No shields... I'm used to shield fighting...
Take my crysknife... Jamis turns to the
right with his knife after a parry... and
watch for a knife switch.
Paul is suddenly moved forward and a ring of Fremen surrounds him.
Jamis unsheathes his crysknife.
May thy knife chip and shatter!
They begin circling each other.
Fear is the mind killer... the little
Jamis leaps. Paul easily evades him. Jamis attacks again and Paul
stabs, but too slowly because of his shield training. Jamis turns and
springs, trying to surprise Paul, but again Paul easily outmaneuvers
him but is too slow on his attack. On the next attack, Paul cuts
Jamis' hand and Jamis begins to show fear.
He's never killed a man like this.
The two circle slowly. Suddenly Jamis can wait no longer. He leaps
high, strikes down with his right hand but the knife has been expertly
shifted to his left hand. Paul shifts beautifully and switches his
knife hand. He plunges his knife deep into Jamis chest as Jamis comes
down for him. Jamis continues down and crumbles dead on the ground.
Suddenly several of the Fremen rush forward and surround Jamis' body,
cover it and whisk it away. Jessica studies Paul. She sees the
excitement in him, in Chani and the others.
He must not grow to enjoy such a victory.
She moves to Paul.
Well, how does it feel to be a killer?
Paul stands, stunned by his mother's words. He really just then
realizes what he has done. Tears begin to fall from his eyes. The
Fremen are amazed. They move to Paul and he at first backs away, but
then lets them touch his eyes and face with their fingers.
He gives water to the dead.
He has never before killed a man in a
They stare in disbelief.
I respect you. You have strength... real
strength... You shall be known as Usul,
which is the strength of the base of the
pillar. This is your secret name in our
troop. But you must choose the name of
manhood which we will call you openly.
What do you call the little mouse which
Several Fremen laugh.
We call that one Muad'dib.
I am Atreides, It's not right that I give
up the name my father gave me... Could I be
know as Paul Muad'dib?
You are Paul Muad'dib, and your mother shall
