D.O.A. updated to 60's chic
23 January 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This color remake of the noir classic (with Edmond O'Brien in the lead) may have been a mistake, but it is not a complete disappointment. If you know the original (a man tries to find out who poisoned him in the limited time left of his life), you may agree that black and white was essential to the mood. But since no one would book a B&W film in the late 1960's, it kind of makes sense that this story is expanded somewhat to an international glossy color film, so indicative of the period.

Tom Tryon was never much of an actor (and would soon abandon the screen for a highly successful writing career), and thereby cannot carry the sense of urgency needed to bring to the role of a man living on borrowed time. Nonetheless, COLOR ME DEAD is worthwhile for a pretty good sequence in shopping center, and an "of its time" psychedelic sequence featuring a lot of gels and topless women.
