R.I.P. Tura Satana & Maria Schneider

R.I.P. to Tura Satana, star of Russ Meyer's Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! and ex-girlfriend of Elvis Presley. I was fortunate enough to see her in person at an outdoor screening of the Russ Meyer film in Austin six or seven years ago and hear her speak about making that film and dating Elvis.
A belated R.I.P. to Maria Schneider, most famous for playing opposite Marlon Brando in Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris, but also an underrated presence in many other films, including Antonioni's The Passenger and Collard's Savage Nights.
