    Well that was a disappointing 12hr download. It looks like the film has been converted from 24fps to 25fps by duplicating every 24th frame. My brain can’t watch those types of conversions – I see the picture momentarily freeze every second.

    Thanks for going that extra mile to find the exclusive streaming version, RL. Amazing quality control on your part. You are the most valuable resource on the Internet. For noir fans, D.O.A. is a knockout, and for horror fans (often the same people!) it is the inspiration for Dead Heat (1988). If you can dig D.O.A. (and I know that you can!), it is well worth seeking out two further gems by the same writer/producer/erstwhile director team of Clarence Greene and Russell Rouse: THE THIEF (1952), with Ray Milland excellent as an AEC nuclear scientist turned reluctant Soviet spy (which is on a par with D.O.A. for knuckle sweating tension and elegant narrative drive and is even more anguished, if that is possible), and the more formulaic but still quite bent WICKED WOMAN (1953) which has massive entertainment value. These three supremely confident low budget films constitute an extraordinary glimpse into a lost Hollywood of grimy satisfaction.

    Man o’ Man! THIS! I remember killing some time on the couch and dlicking through the tv channels when the very start of this movie was on some kind of “classic” movie channel.

    I hesitated for a moment. And I was hooked. Edmond O’Brien had me completely engrossed in the movie. Became a fan of the noir genre ever since.
    R.L. As ever, you are always coming up with the gems.

    Can’t wait to see this RL version. D.O.A. is an absolute classic, one of my favourite films of all time, and especially in the “atomic noir” sub genre. It gets you right in the belly. As far as I know, all home video releases have been technically terrible since it’s in the public domain, although strangely there’s an excellent web version available to stream through a library-based service called kanopy which looks like it has been carefully remastered in blu ray quality. Though there’s no blu ray to be had in any market. Don’t know if this RL version is the same, but will be watching closely, cos this film definitely deserves the highest quality presentation.

    Brilliant. Thanks very much for this one – it’s a peach. The opening shots, which we see during the opening credits, are iconic
