Movie Info

Like many of the great movie Biblical epics of yore, Peter and Paul is stronger on spectacle than substance. Christopher Knopf's teleplay traces several years in the lives of the intellectual Peter (Robert Foxworth) and the religious zealot Paul (Anthony Hopkins). We first meet Peter and Paul at the Crucifixion, and last see the disciples when they are martyred at the hands of the emperor Nero (Julian Fellowes) in 64 AD. In the tradition of The Greatest Story Ever Told, the film's timeless spiritual value is reduced to contemporary Hollywood terms by including a large, often inappropriate cast of "special guest stars." Filmed in Greece, the two-part, four-hour Peter and Paul, premiered on Easter Day, 1981.

Audience Reviews for Peter and Paul

  • Sep 11, 2008
    (1981 Director: Robert Day) this is a superior TV mini-series which I just saw for the first time about 6 months ago. Anthony Hopkins is memorable as the Roman Saul of Tarsis turned Apostle Paul during his travels on the road to Damascus. Worth see. I should note that it has recently been shown twice on TBN (Channel 21) U.S. Christian programming. Could you guess his co-stars?? Jon Finch, Raymond Burr (as King Herod), Eddie Albert (Festus-Local Govt leader), JOhn Fhys-Davies (As John the Baptist) & includes the very handsome Robert Foxworth as the Apostle Peter.
