This blog was the first place I thought of checking out when I heard Satana was dead. Thanks for the homage, she was really something, and will be forever missed.

Here is a nice article I found on her, with great pics http://cinebeats.blogsome.com/2007/06/13/tura-satana-an-american-icon/ There is even a pic of Billy Wilder fixing her clothes on the set of "Irma La Douce".

Hi Daniel. I'm really glad you like my old tribute to Tura. I contribute to the Gunslinger blog but Cinebeats is my personal blog. Tura will be missed!

Like just about everybody from my generation (the ADHD-afflicted one), I know her best from Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. I like to half-jokingly say it's my favorite feminist film.

One of the highlights of an otherwise humdrum film club I ran at my community college was screening said movie - laughs all around.
Or perhaps mostly my own, in reaction to the audience's bewilderment at such a bizarre production. Good times.

Sorry to hear this. I met her at a convention once and found her to be very friendly. It's a shame that after Pussycat! her career didn't take off (from there to Astro-Zombies, etc). She will be missed.
