Tura Satana helped pave the way in film for strong female characters thus inspiring women everywhere.

I think she was 76 years old but there is some uncertainty surrounding her actual birth year, which has been cited as 1935 by some sources.

Russ Meyer’s 1965 drive-in classic “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!”, is probably my favorite cult film.

She was born as Tura Luna Pascual Yamaguchi. She got married twice, once to John Satana from 1951 to 1952. Her second husband was Endel Jurman from 1981 until 2000. She is survived by two daughters and two sisters.
