trigger warning: mention of rape
This hot bitch with flawless hair is Tura Satana. For your benefit I have bulletpointed reasons why you should love her:
- She was taunted at school for her voluptuous figure and Asian heritage but remained a Grade A student
- At the age of 9 she was gang raped by 5 men - they were never prosecuted, so she learnt karate and aikido and spent the next 15 years hunting down each man to KICK HIS ASS HERSELF. She said; “I made a vow to myself that I would someday, somehow get even with all of them. They never knew who I was until I told them.”
- At 13 she got a fake ID and went to Los Angeles to be a Blues singer
- That didn’t work out, so she returned to Chicago, moved back in with her parents and became an exotic dancer. She got pregnant at 19 but carried on dancing until she was 8 months pregnant & continued to make a shit ton of money
- She did all her owns stunts and fights in her most well-known film, Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and director Russ Meyer credits her for key contributions to the film’s visual style
- A lover of Elvis Presley’s, she turned down his marriage proposal - but kept the ring
RIP you original Fierce Bitch.
So much fucking inspiration.
