Does this plot ring a bell for anybody?

Kind of been bugging me. The gist of the story is that someone is extorting people by almost killing them twice and then telling them next time they really will die.

I kind of remember this:

A guy is walking along a street and a car speeds straight at him, only to pull back at the last second. The driver then flips a card at him that says "you just got killed'.

Later on a guy is relaxing after work and drinking a cocktail. When he finishes it there's a skull and crossbones at the bottom of the glass, plus the word poison- you just got killed.

And I vaguely remember a later conversation to the effect of "We've killed you twice. The third time it will be for real."

Does that seem familiar to anyone? I'm pretty sure it's from a long time ago. I don't know why it popped into my head recently.

Sounds like a Twilight Zone plotline.
Could it be a twilight Zone episode? That SOUNDS like it might be right.

But they were all B&W, weren't they? And I seem to remember this thing in color. Also - I think it might have been longer, like full movie length.

But I could be wrong. Yeah, I know - my shaky memory is really helpful here.
