he got this right
I don't remember the book mentioning that navigators were giant mutant monsters. The mini-series did it but I think it was a pure Lynch Eraserhead invention.
The Third State Navigators are never seen if I remember correctly (the gas obscures them and no one but other Guild members truly know what they look like) but people are told that they look like giant fish-men or something like that. The mini-series version was accurate to the book (though a bit silly), the Lynch version is more disturbing and surreal.
Oops..I meant the navigator in the Children of Dune miniseries was accurate to the book. The weird man-bat thing in the original Dune miniseries...I have no idea where that came from.
The sequels are unreadable in comparison to the original book.
Which makes it a good thing you read them first? I guess?

I only wish they'd included the other line from this scene I enjoyed. One of the escorts for the Navigator puts a translation device to his mouth and it speaks for him: "The Bene Gesserit witch must leave."

The "extended TV Alan Smithee version" adds in the navigator chewing the emperor out for a bit.
When watching the theater version I always feel like something is missing.

This is my favourite scene in the movie. Pity it's the first one.

But you did say that, and you are here...oh right, plausible deniability, I get where you're coming from giant fish-person. I get these things.
