D.O.A. provides a terrific sense of urgency. Frank went out to jazz joint to get a drink while on a business trip. But somebody poisoned him, and he only has 24 to live. He must find out what happened and get the people responsible for his impending death. Because like it or not, Frank, played by Edmond O'Brien is going to be D.O.A. when he gets to the hospital. Great movie, very interesting and intense.
If you enjoyed Edmond O'Brien's performance, you can see him again in The Bigamist, co-starring Edmund Gwenn. Yes, that's right - he's the guy who plays Santa from Miracle on 34th Street.
