Writer Tex Hauser and director Doug Miles are the team behind the comedy spoof Don't Ask Don't Tell, a re-dubbed parody using footage from the science fiction B-movie Killers From Space. The original film was directed by W. Lee Wilder in 1954, starring Peter Graves as a scientist monitoring atomic tests. Director Miles has replaced the soundtrack with campy dialogue and added a few new scenes to make the film about a group of aliens who want to turn the whole world gay. In this version, Graves (with the voice of Erik Frandsen) is portrayed as a Dr. Fartin, a scientist involved in a conspiracy to get rid of gay people in the military. When he crash-lands in Texas, the aliens abduct him and take him back to their home base. Revived by the alien operations, the doctor becomes a homosexual agent of the aliens' covert plans. Lloyd Floyd and Rosa Rugosa provide raunchy dialogue for original '50s co-stars James Seay and Barbara Bestar. The 2002 footage features characters like J. Edgar Hoover in drag (Steve Lippe) and Police Chief Mussolino (Floyd) in various sexual situations. Don't Ask Don't Tell had an extremely limited theatrical release before debuting on home video. … More

Critic Reviews for Don't Ask Don't Tell
In execution, this clever idea is far less funny than the original, Killers From Space.
It's a gag that's worn a bit thin over the years, though Don't Ask still finds a few chuckles.
An off-beat, hair-brained, and weird spoof of a horrible science fiction flick.
...every once in a while a true rib-tickler will jam into you and wake you up.
Employing low grade dubbing, cheesy special effects, additional scenes with actors rescued from fast-food dinner theaters, plus the worst dance number this side of an Oscar broadcast, Don't Ask Don't Tell is a nonstop guffaw fest for fans of early John Wa
One gets the impression the creators of Don't Ask Don't Tell laughed a hell of a lot at their own jokes. Too bad none of it is funny.
The overall effect is so completely inane that one would have to be mighty bored to even think of staying with this for more than, say, ten... make that three minutes.
