“Tura Thursday” is a regular series celebrating the legacy of the late, great Tura Satana, best known as Varla in the 1965 Russ Meyer cult classic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!. This series is curated by Tura’s longtime manager, friend, confidant and CEO of Tura Satana Productions, Siouxzan Perry.

This week I want to share a beautiful tribute written for Tura after her death on February 4 2011 by Paola Rodelas: “Remembering Tura Satana: Cult actress of Pilipina descent dies at 72”

Her words were so powerful and timely I knew it would also speak to her fans, as it spoke to me. Thank you Paola!

I have also created a small video to go with it.

As always, please visit our site and sign our guestbook!
