Tura!!

I only became aware of Tura Satana when she died in 2011. How I wish I'd known about her as I was growing up. With her bad ass characters and curvy physique, she is a bit of a hero for me. The images of Asian women I grew up with in the US were docile, subservient and boring. None of them were loud or tough or curvy. Tura embodied all of this and more.
