    We love this channel and all the classic movies. This film was made in my home town and my mom was in it. We have been searching for a copy of the film, but have had no luck. Would it be possible for you to air it on TMC? Thank youJames Nixon

  • Fair attempt at Women's Lib comedy/drama

    "Stand Up and Be Counted" was director Jackie Coopers' stab at making a funny and thoughtful piece about the womens lib movement at its height in 1972. It stars Jacqueline Bisset as a writer who returns to Denver, Col. to write about the effects the changing times are having on several of the women in her hometown. They include a pampered trophy wife (Stella Stevens), who is surrounded by material wealth but is virtually ignored by her husband, a successful bra manufacturer (Hector Elizondo), a mother of four (Loretta Swit) who yearns for a career of her own against the wishes of her husband (Steve Lawrence), and the writers' own sister (Lee Purcell), who wants a baby but not a husband. Other familiar faces pop up in small roles, including Nancy Walker, Kathleen Freeman, Anne Francine, Isabel Sanford, and even Dr. Joyce Brothers as mothers, grandmothers and mentors finding themselves frustrated with their roles in society. In the midst of her research, Bisset finds herself also questioning a possible relationship with an old flame, and if settling down with him would enhance, or suppress, her life and career.While there are genuinely amusing moments and a few scenes that do hit home dramatically, on the whole this film stumbles because Cooper cant make up his mind if he wants to make a broad comedy or a serious examination of womens' changing roles. The performances are all appealing, with Stevens and Swit standing out in the ensemble."Stand Up and Be Counted" is worth a look for the cast, and as a curiosity for its subject matter as well as for introducing the Helen Reddy classic "I Am Woman". But it is not surprising that Jackie Cooper never directed another film.
