One of my favorite film noirs, D.O.A is a bit sappy in the romantic dialog department but the movie still packs a wallop. Edmond O'Brien is perfect as Frank Bigelow, a guy torn between settling down with a great gal who adores him and his urge to sow some wild oats. Unfortunately for him, it gets complicated and the clock starts ticking. You want hard-boiled film noir? This is one of the classics.

Best in the cast of supporting players without a doubt is Neville Brand who invades Lyle Bettger territory in playing a psychopathic thug in Luther Adler's employ. Adler himself is always good as are good girl Pamela Britton and bad girl Beverly Garland.
The film was made on a shoestring, but occasionally those films can prove worthwhile.
