This is typical of the attitude of some studios and distributors. Instead of producing a QUALITY DVD or Blu-Ray disc they put the movie out on DVD-R disc and then have the gall to overcharge for it. I called Warner and a spokesperson said that "for many consumers they are more concerned with getting the movie on a disc that they are with the quality"...what a load of hogwash..!!!.....I for one want a QUALITY DVD or Blu-Ray disc that can be played on all types of players. I also want "extras" on the disc. I bought 2 movies on DVD-R discs from Warner. There were no "extras" and the movie was not restored or remastered. For these prices I EXPECT more. Please call Amazon and Warner and DEMAND better..!!!

Another great old film that if there were justice in the world would be available remastered on a regular dvd release with extras. I got my copy off cable and its in my top 100 favorite films section. Fortunately they have remastered and released some fantastic films from the 30's and 40's and some of the commentaries are great in revealing interesting facts re: Hollywoods Golden Age. Unfortunately there are titles still not in normal circulation such as this. If u enjoyed "Deception" with Bette Davis - get a copy of this movie somewhere - i think its one of Claude's more interesting roles. Five stars for the film NOT the dvd-r - haven't seen the quality of that!

Nothing against the movie - Its definitive a good one.

Thrilling, good photographed, great actors, including my all time favorite actor Hurd Hatfield who was always underrated. Also great Ted North (born 1916 and still somewhere in New York area...)

It's good to have this movie now on DVD. But... I don't like really the WB Archive collection. It's to expensive in my mind for a DVD-R and without any subtitles. Its hard to understand the movie for deaf hearing people.

The Picture quality of course is not the best but OK.

TRIVIA:

The radio station call letters, WMCB, were created by inserting Michael Curtiz' initials into those of Warner Bros.

Crew or equipment visible: When Steve Edwards shows up for the first time at the front door of Grandison's home, the cameraman is clearly reflected on the window of the door.

Recently purchased this Warner Archive copy of the 1947 film The Unsuspected. This film has always been a favorite of mine because it's a great starring role for Claude Rains. It also has in supporting roles Audrey Totter and Hurd Hatfield. This film deserves complete remastering and restoration, but it has been unavailable . Despite the negative reviews about this release, I found the DVD fine for viewing. I have recorded it from a TCM showing, and this copy of the film is far superior. . Again, it deserves to be fully remastered, but until then I am satisfied with this release.

"The Unsuspected" is a 1947 murder drama directed by Michael Curtiz, based on the novel of the same name by Charlotte Armstrong. The film opens as Roslyn Bright (Barbara Waddell), secretary to radio personality Victor Grandison (Claude Rains), is speaking on the telephone from Grandison's home office to Althea Keane (Audrey Totter), wife of Grandison's alcoholic nephew Oliver Keane (Hurd Hatfield). A shadow enters the room. Roslyn senses danger. She screams as she is murdered. Her death is ruled a suicide. The excitement in the Grandison household doesn't stop there. Matilda Frazier (Joan Caulfield), Grandison's beautiful niece, recently lost her life in a shipwreck. A man named Stephen Howard (Ted North) turns up on Grandison's doorstep and invites himself to stay, claiming that he and Matilda were married only 3 days before she died. No one has reason to question Howard's motives, when they find out that he's independently wealthy.

"The Unsuspected" is often classified as "film noir", but it doesn't possess any strong noir elements. It's a straight "murder drama", as they were called at the time. The presumed villain, Victor Grandison, is over-the-top eccentrically creepy, so the real interest lies in the hostile flirtation between Althea and Stephen, both strong characters with a scheme. The character with a "noir" predicament is Matilda, but her plight is not written from that perspective. She never grasps what's happening to her; she's just buffeted about, seemingly no worse for the wear. The film is entertaining and eventually suspenseful. There is even a car chase at the end. It's never clear with whom we are supposed to sympathize. The strong characters, even when well-intentioned, are devious and cruel. Matilda can be pitied but not admired.

My review is not about the movie Unsuspected. As always another great film starring one of the most gifted and underrated actors of the 30's & 40's Claude Raines.
My comments are about the ridiculous prices both Amazon and Warner places on these great old films.
First..Amazon charges more for these Warner Archives films than their Studio Store charges.
Second..Warner put these films out on DVD-R. The cheapest recording medium available. I understand why...the cost. It would add greatly to the purchase price,to put out a fully loaded DVD. But shouldn't the 19.95 price the Warner Bros Store charges, include some of the shipping charges
as well?
