Tura Satana Has Died

Sad news.  The great B-movie cult figure, Japanese-American actress-dancer Tura Satana, has died.  Satana, who inspired the Kill Bill! films, was best-known for her tight-costumed pneumatic psychopath in Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!, perhaps the ne plus ultra of camp schlock movie making (sexploitation).  She also dated celebrities like Elvis and Sinatra, before her career took off.  Later, she abandoned her bizarre and novel mix of martial arts and burlesque, and settled down to a series of Joe jobs, but was always a fan favourite.  She will not be forgotten.
