A PICTURE AS EXCITINGLY DIFFERENT AS ITS TITLE!
--
Frank Bigelow (Edmond O'Brien) is about to die, and he knows it. The accountant has been poisoned and has only 24 hours before the lethal concoction kills him. Determined to find out who his murderer is, Frank, with the help of his assistant and girlfriend, Paula (Pamela Britton), begins to trace back over his last steps. As he frantically tries to unravel the mystery behind his own impending demise, his sleuthing leads him to a group of crooked businessmen and another murder.

D.O.A. is an American film noir considered a classic of the genre.

Due to a filing error, the copyright to the film was not renewed on time, causing it to fall into the public domain: it was subsequently remade as Color Me Dead (1969), D.O.A. (1988), and Dead On Arrival (2017).
According to modern sources, the idea for D.O.A.'s unusual storyline was taken from a 1931 German film, Der Mann, Der Seinen Morder Sucht [The Man Who Seeks His Murderer], directed by Robert Siodmak.

David Wood of the BBC described the opening as "perhaps one of cinema's most innovative opening sequences." An opening scene features Frank Bigelow walking through the long hallway of a police station to report his own murder.
In 2004, D.O.A. was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
The film was nominated for two American Film Institute lists:
- 2001: AFI's 100 Years...100 Thrills
- 2008: AFI's 10 Top 10 mystery
