Alejandro Jodorowsky and ‘Dune’: The Story Of The Greatest Sci-Fi Film Never Made

Jodorowsky's Dune

The long and storied history of cinema is one to be studied, admired, and treasured for the many timeless classic feature films it has brought to our astonished eyes. But beneath that history lies buried a mass grave of unrealized films that were either killed at the treatment or script stage or were permitted to proceed in front of the cameras before being shut down and virtually forgotten about for the remainder of time infinite. In an alternate universe many of those unmade movies completed the journey from random idea to the new release section of your neighborhood Target and irrevocably changed the face of cinema forever.

This is the story of one of those great unmades. This is the story of Alejandro Jodorowsky‘s Dune.

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when my fear is gone I will turn and face fear’s path, and only I will remain.”

Orson Welles

For those who are unaware, the late, great Orson Welles did a lot of voice work over his career. From his unforgettable radio performance of War of the Worlds, to his work as a narrator (like this promotional video for shooting movies in my home state of New Hampshire; music by Tangerine Dream?), or even in animated movies, such as 1986’s The Transformers: The Movie, where he voiced Unicron. There is no doubt that he had one of the best voices we’ve ever heard.

For those of you who loved and miss this voice, here’s an old gem of a video of Orson reading Herman Melville‘s literary classic, Moby Dick. This may sound like a boring video to some of you, but if you’re not familiar with Welles’ brilliant and booming voice, you’ll be quick to discover that this is just flat-out awesome.

Now, this is not the first time Welles was involved with the classic white whale. He played multiple roles, including Captain Ahab and Father Mapple in a 1955 TV special; then again as Mapple in a 1956 movie. He was even used as Captain Ahab, Starbuck, and Ishmael in a 1971 short film that was never completed and ultimately edited together in 1999.

Grab your harpoon and row yourself on over to the other side to watch a bit of Orson Welles reading Moby Dick.
