RIP, Tura Satana

The inimitable Tura Satana has died at 72. She was a famed burlesque performer and acted in Billy Wilder’s Irma La Douce, but she’s probably best known for her spine-breaking performance as Varla in Russ Meyer’s Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Cinebeats has an excellent retrospective of her life and career. Her official site is here.
