On Jan. 11, 1994, Pennsylvania oil executive John M. Iannone parked his van at the Pittsburgh airport, spread blood and bullet casings inside to suggest foul play, and vanished with $470,000 of his investors' money. He left behind a wife and three children, a big house in the suburbs, and what police later discovered was a bizarre - and fraudulent - persona as a high-profile Vietnam War hero and pillar of the local veterans community. Last month, a Colorado oil speculator who called himself Wayne D. Hamilton and who claimed to be a decorated Vietnam War commando, disappeared from his home near Denver, making off, friends said, with almost $100,000 of their money.

They all remember the sound and the feel and not knowing what it was. It was "sort of like a sonic boom," said Jerry Milford, 38, of Indianapolis, traveling with his family in Row 37, the second-to-last row of United Airlines Flight 232. It felt like "a sudden, strong jolt," said A. Upton Rehnberg, 52, of Rockford, Ill., an executive with an aircraft-parts manufacturer, seated in Row 9 at the front of the coach section. It was "kind of like an explosion. . . . It almost felt like you hit something," said Donna Treber, 47, of Westminster, Colo.

The Denver Nuggets traded guard Walter Davis, a 14-year veteran, to the Portland Trail Blazers yesterday as part of a complicated three-team, four- player deal that sent power forward Greg Anderson and a first-round draft pick from the New Jersey Nets to Denver. Denver received nothing directly from Portland for Davis, who has averaged nearly 20 points per game in his career. But Portland agreed to send Drazen Petrovic to the Nets to help set up Denver's deal for Anderson. The Nets also received Terry Mills from the Nuggets.

With the unmitigated disaster of Four Rooms and the critical shelling that greeted From Dusk to Dawn, the hitherto white-hot Quentin Tarantino has been taking his lumps. Tarantino should thank the makers of Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead, for it is a black crime comedy that makes us keenly feel his absence. The movie and pop-culture influences in Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction always make for lively arguments. Perhaps one day his influence on other young directors will be the subject of film-school graduate studies; Things to Do in Denver should furnish ample material.
