D.O.A. is a 1950 film noire directed by Rudolph Mat''. The film follows accountant Frank Bigelow (Edmond O'Brien) who is investigating his own murder. Told in a series of flashbacks, the story begins with Bigelow walking down the long hall of the police station to report the crime. As he relates the details to the police, the film flashes back to the town of Banning, California where Bigelow decides to take a vacation in San Francisco. When he arrives, he joins a group of salesmen who are on their way to a "jive" nightclub called "The Fisherman." At the club, a stranger switches Bigelow's glass with another. When he wakes up in the morning, he doesn't feel well. He goes to a doctor who tells him that he has been poisoned with a drug called iridium. There is no antidote for the poison and he has, at most, one week to live. With the help of his secretary, Paula (Pamela Britton), Bigelow must untangle a series of lies in order to find his killers.moreless
