The world is a little less sexy and dangerous in peace Tura Satana

“You’re a beautiful animal…and I’m weak, and I want you…”
Took the words right out of my face.
Immortal lines uttered at Tura Satana in the iconic actress’ most famous role as the ultra-sexy and tough as nails Varla in the grindhouse classic, Faster Pussycat, Kill…Kill! (1965). “She’s a cold one—more stallion than mare. Too much for one man to handle!” was another quote that perfectly summed up Tura, who throughout her life was everything from an erotic dancer and gang leader, to a model and martial arts expert.
Tura Satana, having one of the most all-time coolest names ever, passed away at 73 years old on February 4th, 2011, leaving behind a grindhouse film legacy of female empowerment that literally rewrote the rules on tough chick womanhood. Truly, there would be no Joan Jett without Tura Satana’s gender redefining trailblazing.
