This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The carryall never shows up to carry away the harvester due to sabotage at another location. Paul stays in the ornithopter during the rescue. Several men are left behind during the rescue; they are Fremen who were observing the spice harvesting and simply walked away from the worm. While the Duke, Paul and Liet-Kynes are on a tour of spice harvesting, they rescue a harvester crew when their carryall malfunctions and is unable to respond when a worm threatens the harvester. Paul is distracted by the effects of the spice on the surface of the sand when directing rescue efforts on the desert surface and has to be brought back to the Duke's ornithopter by Gurney Hallack. No Fremen were on the harvester.
   Liet-Kynes' father initiated a Fremen program to make Dune more habitable long after spice mining started. Liet-Kynes says that spice mining interrupted Fremen efforts to modify Dune's climate.
   The Reverend Mother questions Paul about the Truthsayer drug and tells him how men who have tried to take it have all died. She only tests him with the box of pain.
   The Atreides solders (including Duncan) have trouble adjusting to Dune and have discipline problems due to missing their homes and families on Caladan. Jessica lectures Hawat in his failings. This does not happen and there are no discipline problems among the Atreides.
   Jamis and Paul duel without still-suits while sheltered in sietch. The Fremen think Paul is toying with Jamis during the duel as he is used to fighting shielded opponents that require a slow blade. Chani gives Paul advice on how to defeat Jamis. Chani gives Paul a crysknife and wishes him an honorable death. They fight while in still-suits. The Fremen think Paul is toying with Jamis, but it is because he has never killed anyone before.
