I believe a clue to this lies in the credit block on the back of the keepcase of Beyond Suspicion. Instead of "Twentieth Century Fox Presents", the credits begin with "Franchise Pictures Presents". Then, the Fox logo at the bottom has the words "Distributed by:" above it. This does not appear on any other title that is a Fox film. I would speculate this transfer was done by Franchise Pictures (the production company) and Fox is merely the distributor.
You are 100% correct. This movie, also known as "Auggie Rose", was almost a straight to video production but was then picked up I think in something like 10 theaters in the US. It therefore had a week long run, THEN went to videohttp://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
Considering that Franchise probably lost money on this film it doesn't surprise me they wouldn't spring for an anamorphic transfer. I'm sure they just wanted to put out the cheapest DVD they could and hopefully recoop some cash.
Fox is just the distributer. They had nothing to do with the making of the DVD. There's no need for us to start a witchhunt herehttp://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif
BTW, I'm not commenting on the film itself (I actually thought it was ok), just the fiscal realities.
