Tura Satana reported dead
If you know who Tura Satana was, you are reading the right blog.
If you don’t know…well, it’s still okay. There is no admission test here.
Seriously, the screen world has lost an archetype of female power…while women who can (and will) beat you up are more common now, she was a pioneer in that image.
Satana was the star of Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!
She brought her deadly presence to other geek movies and TV:
The Astro-Zombies Trilogy (you didn’t know there were three? Wait, you didn’t know there was one?)
Both the Man and Girl from U.N.C.LE.
The Doll Squad
She did voice work in Rob Zombie’s recent The Haunted World of El Superbeasto
