      I just noticed that Tura had a role in "Our Man Flint" (the James Bond spoof) as "Stripper - Uncredited" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059557/fullcredits…

      I`m really happy to see this project funded, Tura is an inspiration for me and a lot of women out there, can`t wait to watch it!

      Bonjour to everyone who has posted a recent comment (and even those that haven't)!

      Thanks for your really supportive and funny notes! They're often hilarious and very much appreciated. Great things are happening, just keep an eye on the Kickstarter updates for all the latest news!

      Gianluca: no offense taken at all! Johnny Depp is great looking, and the Ed Wood parallel is absolutely accurate.

      THANK YOU ALL, and have a wonderful afternoon!

      SO HAPPY TO SEE THIS FUNDED. I have been a fan of Tura Satana for a long long time. Good Luck in all your work. I believe in this project!

      I have to say, I'm so happy a project like this is coming to fruition. Tura was a part of a very special time in my life with a similarly dark-haired lady and a lot of Tura herself on a fading basement television. Thank you guys.

      Weren't we asked to write down our comments to let the page live? So, please, come on! While the crew starts working and can't follow us and reply our comments, we can anyway post here once in a while, no? Some of us already explained why contributed this project. The others? Somebody else is willing to? I can add that watching Cody in a picture here misled me: he looks like Johnny Depp there (hope it's not an offence ;) ) and it made me think of a movie I really love---Tim Burton's Ed Wood. Just joking about that but, well, I thought that Tura! will be fantastic because it'll be made by people who love(d) and respect(ed) Tura for a long time and, just like Ed Wood is kind of a love declaration by Tim Burton, Tura! will be a "love declaration", another one, definitive, for a person whom we, superfans/admirer/curious/other, will be missing. Can't wait to watch it and, maybe, to read about it (in Italy, for instance, we have "Ciak magazine" and "Film TV" that could host news about the movie).
      Long live Tura, long love Tura.

      Congratulations! Tura was a very special lady. I had the pleasure of meeting her three times. I am looking forward to seeing the documentary.

      I missed the offer for a Bluray but would very much like to add one to my tier (Perk of the day $60). Can I do this? The email with the DVD/Bluray offer said it was only yesterday.

      Knowing that Tura would be thrilled of my letter makes me even happier and prouder :)
      And, just to be precise, though in 2 minutes everything will be "finished" and it takes > 3K$ to reach the stretch goal :( I have to say that your latest update is wrong: Tura's bra is not really available :p <3 :D

    24. Tura Satana Productions and Tropico Film Creator on April 12

      Gianluca! What a beautiful letter. Thank you for sharing your reasons for supporting this film. Tura is immortal in film; also immortal in our hearts and minds. We appreciate your passionate support, and I know Tura would be thrilled. Thrilled! Thank you.

      April 12, 6:10 am in Italy. Let me share some thoughts with all of you.
      First of all, I almost didn't sleep last night: maybe I was wondering of a third Kitten's bra to add a contribution (ha ha, what an aroused admirer! :p ), even though I've already overtaken my budget :D
      I'm for sure a Tura's admirer, surely not a super fan. I watched FPKK for the first time about 20 years ago but I first watched Tura's pictures years back. I don't know why I admired her: I knew little of her, her life, her job, but she looked sooo strong and cool. Her name sounded like a nickname and then I discovered it was a real one. Cooler than ever. Her life proved her to be stronger than she looked. Maybe that's why I admired her. I felt like a sucker when I heard she passed away. Did I think she was immortal?
      So, since I'm not that big fan of her, why do I strongly want all of us to support this project? I just feel it's the right thing to do and, as all of you, help the way I could to make it possible. Maybe I'll see the first stretch goal reached in a couple of hours... I know that, even when I will have "the real thing" (that appears to be available but it is no longer since I upped my pledge ;) ) it won't be like being hugged by her (whom I never contacted, blame on me), but I sincerely hope that she won't kick my butt from wherever she is now :)
      Long live Tura.
      Faster, backers! Pledge, pledge.

      So proud to be able to contribute, even just a small amount. Tura has been an inspiration and an angel on my shoulder for as long as I can remember. She has always made me remember the power of being a strong woman and owning that power. She is beautiful and fierce and she gave us everything. We are so happy to be able to give back!

    31. Tura Satana Productions and Tropico Film Creator on April 11

      It's wonderful hearing about everyone's personal discovery of Tura. She was the real thing, and meant so much to so many of us. It's a glowing tribute to her, and we're all very grateful!

    32. Tura Satana Productions and Tropico Film Creator on April 11

      Samuel! So great to hear. Yes, John Waters has always been a very outspoken fan of FPKK, probably the biggest! It's great having him in the film. And thanks to you for coming aboard!
