Adrian Costumes and More Adrian Costumes!
4 August 2002 | by splurbenSee all my reviews

A husband's middle age crisis affair becomes an exhilarating parade of exemplary Adrian costumes amidst a fantastically wild DeMille ending which kicks off with an amazing and unusual 'Electric Ballet' sequence. A "MUST SEE" for fans of Adrian.
