Frank Bigelow (Edmond O'Brien, you may remember him as Winston Smith in `1984' 1956) realizes after he had a one night fling that he does not feel so good. He feels bad enough to see a doctor. Yep he is D.O.A. (Dead On Arrival) as he has been poisoned and only has a little time left to live.

Obsessed with finding out who did it and why, Frank has to reconstruct his wild night. Will he find out in time? If so what then?

D.O.A. ~ Dennis Quaid

A classic that will stand on it's own for a long time. You have to take into account the time period when watching this classic. Sometimes it was cheesy and sometimes it was clunky. This was made before the non stop action movies of today. Poison is a classic way of killing off rivals even today in real life. Ricin and polonium come to mind to name a few poisons used by spies in the past few decades since DOA was made.

I first saw D. O. A. back in the early 70's when I was a pre-teen. We were on vacation and the weather was awful and we were stuck in a dingy hotel with limited tv service. My mother turned this movie on and I was hooked. I loved this movie back then and I still love it today. It kept my interest throughout the whole movie trying to guess who dunnit.

I really enjoyed watching this movie again after many years. It is a true piece of nostalgia for me and I appreciate seeing it.

Nostalgic, black and white, overacting, murder mystery, life with little technology or modern medical knowledge . . . worth watching! Notice: they pay everything in cash! :-) Violence without violence or blood.

If you're a fan of film noir, or Edmond O'Brien (or both), this is a must-see. Great story, script, cinematography and performances. This one is hard to beat...

Except for a few oddities this is pretty much a perfect movie. It sets up, revs up, and goes to its logical conclusion without a hiccup.
