Jack Holt stars as Robert Bailey, a Henry Ford-like auto industrialist who decides to give his millions away to various charitable causes. Naturally, this arouses hostility amongst Bailey's friends, relatives and associates, some of whom have murder on their minds. When he elects to give away his company stock to his faithful employees, Bailey's intimates converge upon him, making a last-ditch effort to make him change his mind. When the inevitable murder attempt finally comes to pass, Bailey is shocked to discover that the culprit is his oldest and most trusted friend. Like most Columbia "B"'s of the period, Under Suspicion boasts a top-rank cast, including three former Marx Brothers foils: Margaret Irving, Esther Muir and Purnell Pratt.
