Set in Canada, Under Suspicion finds heroine Alice Freil (Lois Moran) heading above the border to escape a trumped-up criminal charge. After a suspenseful train trip to Jasper National Park, Alice links up with RCMP officer John Smith (J. Harold Murray). Lost in the wilderness, hero and heroine surviving a raging forest fire and manage to corral the genuine villain. Every so often, Mountie Smith lifts his voice in song, proving no competition for Nelson Eddy (or even Dudley Do-Right). For its first showing in Brooklyn, Under Suspicion was pepped up by having the projectionist hold a red gel over the projection lens during the fire scenes.
