RIP: Tura 'Varla' Satana

Plan9Crunch has a sad note to pass on: Cult actress Tura Satana, best known for her kick#@@ roles in Russ Meyers' Faster Pussycat Kill Kill and Ted V. Mikels' The Doll Squad, has died of heart failure, her manager states. A New York Times arts blog report is here

Above is a memorable scene of Tura in Mikels' The Doll Squad. If you time tonight, watch Faster Pussycat ... again. It's a classic cult film. We'll hopefully have more on Tura in the next few days.

My sincere condolences to her family members. From the photos I've seen posted on the internet over the last few years, she seemed like a wonderful person.I wish I could have met her, I think we would have gotten along really swell!
