D. O. A., 1949 film

The film begins in a city at night. A man walks into the police station or report a murder. "Who is dead?" they ask. "I am." Frank Bigelow tells his story. He lives in Banning, a small town near the desert where he is an accountant. He will travel to San Francisco on a vacation. Paula Gibson is upset by this news. Will they get married? Frank arrives in San Francisco, the St. Francis Hotel is crowded with buyers (post-war prosperity). He gets a call from the office, a Mr. Phillips wants to talk to him. Salesmen are meeting buyers in a holiday atmosphere party. They visit bars to hear jazz. The musicians play as in a frenzy. [Did someone switch glasses?] Are the jive fans being mocked? The next morning Frank doesn't feel well. He walks the streets to the Medical Center for tests.

A nurse stares at this patient. The doctors tell of luminous toxin in his system, there is no antidote or cure! And only a few days to live! Frank is in denial. There is another diagnostic. This is not an accident! The city streets have little traffic. You can see the reflection of the green-and-white buses in the store windows. Paula calls to tell him that Mr. Phillips just died last night in Los Angeles. A DC-3 flies through the air. Frank goes to see Mr. Phillips office. Comptroller Halliday speaks to him. Phillips died in a fall from his apartment. His widow knows nothing. Phillips had been arrested for dealing in stolen iridium. Frank notarized a bill of sale from Mr. George Reynols years ago. Frank searches for clues about Reynolds. Someone shoots at him, Frank grabs his revolver and shoots back. Back at his hotel strange men kidnap him. Paula calls again. These men take him to see Mr. Majack, they speak. Chester is psychopathic. [Is that name Armenian?

A young couple's atempt to adopt a child requires an extensive background check, more extensive than the husband has counted on. When his secret life is exposed he has to explain his actions to the investigator, and we hear the story as he tells it. A true classic.
