Accountant and part-time notary Frank Bigelow is unwittingly administered a "luminous toxin" at a San Francisco jazz club; far from instantaneous, he has time to analyze his life to try to determine why exactly someone has murdered him. Classic low-budget B-noir. Entered 2004 into the National Film Registry. Remade as Color Me Dead (1969) and D.O.A. (1988). Copyright has lapsed and the film is in the public domain.
