Tura Satana, the shapely actress, exotic dancer, and martial artist known for her roles in Russ Meyers' cult classic Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and the grindhouse science fiction flick Astro Zombies, died last Friday of heart failure. Satana was famous for her burlesque-ready frame (link NSFW) — which won her many an admirer, including one-time paramour Elvis Presley — and her penchant for playing deadly femme fatales onscreen. According to Ms. Satana's manager Siouxzan Perry, she died at 72.
