Tura Satana kicks butt in ”Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!”

AS Varla
IN Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965)

WHO IS SHE? In Russ Meyer’s boobsploitation classic, Varla and two go-go dancer pals drive out to the desert, looking for kicks and a hidden treasure, and they’ll roll over anyone who gets in their way.

SKILLS One of the baddest bad girls ever, Varla can out-drag-race any man, and she can kill with a single karate chop to the back.

BATTLE GEAR Cleavage-revealing jumpsuit and driving gloves

MALE ADMIRER Kirk (Paul Trinka), whose family’s ranch is the rumored site of the cash Varla wants to grab

DROP-DEAD DIALOGUE ”I never try anything. I just do it. Wanna try me?”

CAN’T GET ENOUGH? Alas, Satana’s only other major role was as the villainous spy ringleader in the Z-grade Astro-Zombies (1969).
