Interlude: Dinosaurs Are Coming To This Town

From 1989, here's an impressive TV commercial promoting limited edition dinosaur stamps from the U.S. Postal Service. It's a clever pastiche of 50's sci-fi movies, directly referencing Invasion of the Body Snatchers and It Came From Outer Space. The woman who appears at the end reminds me a bit of the Joan Weldon's character in Them! -- another film set in the desert southwest.

The ad was clearly done with affection by someone who knew these films.
