D.O.A. (Film) 1950

Variant title: Dead on Arrival

Rudolph Maté directed this film noir suspense thriller, released by United Artists in 1950. The cast includes Edmond O’Brien as an accountant desperately in search of the killer who lethally poisoned him. D.O.A. was the first in a trio of films produced by brothers Harry and Leo Popkin, with music by Tiomkin. Tiomkin was an early practitioner of placing theme music in the source score, as he does in “Juke Box Theme,” a light dance arrangement of the film’s love theme.

The people involved with “D.O.A.” will be available soon.
