Movie: D.O.A. (1950)
While trying to solve his own impending murder, notary Frank Bigelow discovers that Eugene Philips, a client of his, has just committed suicide, and the trail leads him to believe that he killed himself out of shame from selling dangerous chemical materials. But of course, it's more complex, and ultimately more simple, than that. As it turns out, Philips' wife was having an affair and wanted him out of the picture, with the stolen element providing the perfect cover story. It's always the most over-the-top solution possible with these noir wives.
