finished out a Noir comp on DVD

watched The Scar a/k/a Hollow Triumph - about a convict(Paul Conried) who is a doppleganger for a prominent shrink with a Scar on his mug- vaguely interesting- but wieghed down by the added in love story

and then

D.O.A. - this one got me going from the opening scene and took me for a fun exciting ride the rest of the flick. Basically Frank Bigelow(Edmund O'Brien) starts the flick by barging into the police station and stating he has a homicide to report - his. The rest of the film the riddle is answered- sure it has some crazy leaps in the final third- but a fun and engaging flick from start to finish
