"I want to report a murder."
"Who was murdered?"
The wildly inventive, frenetically paced D.O.A. is deservedly hailed as one of the signature films in the film noir canon. While visiting San Francisco on business, southern California accountant Edmond O'Brien gets slipped a fatally poisonous concoction while carousing at a jazz club. With just days to live, he sets out on a frantic quest. Can he find out who has killed him, and why, before the "luminous toxin" takes its toll? DIR Rudolph Maté; SCR Russell Rouse, Clarence Greene; PROD Leo C. Popkin. U.S., 1949, b&w, 84 min. NOT RATED
