Biography by Sandra Brennan

Dark-eyed, raven-haired, and extraordinarily busty actress Tura Satana's exotic appearance comes from her Apache-Japanese descent. An expert in karate, the former exotic dancer gained cult status after headlining Russ Meyer's notorious go-go-girl epic Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1966). It was her third film appearance and afterward she staffed two more exploitation films, including Astro-Zombies (1967). She retired to become a nurse.
