D.O.A., or Dead on Arrival, is a 1950 Film Noir drama about a man named Frank Bigelow (Edmond O'Brien), who must frantically try to find out who wants him dead through poisoning — and why. The plot speeds as Frank recounts his past events to the police to get help.

Due to a filing error the copyright to the film was not renewed on time, causing it to fall into the Public Domain, and as such it can be downloaded here.

A remake starring Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan was released in 1988. The 2006 film Crank has a similar plot.
