C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater: D.O.A. (1949)

A truly classic noir thriller. Full-screen recommended.
C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater:  D.O.A.  (1949)

"I want to report a murder."

This is how D.O.A. opens, so it spoils nothing to tell you that this is the story of a CPA named Frank Bigelow (played by Edmond O'Brien) who is poisoned.

Enjoy!

(This YouTube lists the movie as 1950; its release was actually 1949.)
