Under Suspicion's 1.85:1 widescreen anamorphic transfer succeeds in keeping all of the elements of each frame clear and well-defined. It contains solid black levels and impressive colors that often correlate with the tone of the action onscreen. However, several defects and a significant amount of grain are on the print, and several outdoor scenes suffer from a lack of brightness. Viewers opposed to widescreen may also watch the film in a cropped full-frame version. The 5.1-channel Dolby Digital audio transfer on this disc fails to take full advantage of the rear surround speakers. It works very well in keeping the sharp edges alive in the tense interrogation scenes, but the overall sound experience could have been better. This disc also contains a 2.0-channel Dolby transfer that also emanates a clear and sharp sound. Under Suspicion's primary supplement is a feature commentary with director Stephen Hopkins and actor Morgan Freeman. While this track isn't fascinating, it does provide decent insight into the making of the film. Hopkins' track on Lost in Space was one of the highlights of that disc, and once again he offers plenty of information. Freeman is a soft-spoken man, but his comments are thoughtful and worthwhile. This disc also includes an 11-minute promotional featurette that primarily contains interviews with Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman. Most of their comments fall into the light promotional category, but both stars show a genuine excitement for the project. A full-screen theatrical trailer and talent files round out the extra features.
