Film noir was defined by the darkness of its plots, and few were darker than this unnerving effort by director Rudolph Mate, about a man searching for his own murderer.
Wall Street Journal

Product Description:

This famous film-noir murder mystery features an inventive twist: the victim as "detective," desperately trying to solve his own murder. An accountant on vacation in San Francisco gets a dose of lethal, slow-acting poison. He then begins a desperate search for the individual responsible for his impending demise. Irresistible plot given remakes in 1969 as COLOR ME DEAD, and in 1988 starring Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid.


Production Notes:

  • A classic film noir-murder mystery with an inventive twist: the victim serves as his own "detective," desperately trying to solve his own murder.
  • Rated BBFC PG by the British Board of Film Classification.
