tura satana

tura satana

Tura Satana, the actress whose commanding presence, exotic features and busty physique grabbed a flock of viewers of Russ Meyer's 1965 cult film "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!", died on Friday night in Reno, Nevada. The death was made known by her manager of many years, Siouxzan Perry.

It was said the cause of death was believed to be heart failure. Ms. Perry said Ms. Satana was 72 when she died, though other sources listed her birth year as 1935. Born Tura Luna Pascual Yamaguchi in Hokkaido, Japan, to a father of Japanese and Filipino descent and a mother who was Cheyenne Indian and Scots-Irish, her breakthrough role came in “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!”, a Meyer exploitation film that, in stark opposition to the director’s later works, featured no nudity.

So another classic actress has now passed but has left behind work which for a long time will keep her well known by many people who've seen her films.
