D.O.A. (1950)



Reviews and Comments

D.O.A. is a film that beat the odds. It's one of the most remembered of the film noir genre, yet it had no A-list stars, nor much of a budget, to help it earn its longevity in the memories of classic film buffs. The story is about a man who learns he has been poisoned and will die in a few hours. Within that time, he tries to track down his killer. His quest is a compelling one, and the movie establishes a wonderful atmosphere about it that keeps the audience suspicious about what's going on off-camera.
