William Powell's home is on West Vereda Norte in Palm Springs, California. In 1940 Powell courted and married actress Diana Lewis and, shortly after, they purchased this 1935-36 Mediterranean/Spanish Revival style house as their desert retreat. Lewis, known as "Mousie" retired from films shortly after making Cry "Havoc" in 1943. Powell's career continued on, although at a much less hectic pace than it had in the 1930's. He filmed The Thin Man Goes Home (1945), Life With Father (1947), which earned him an Oscar nomination, Song Of The Thin Man (1947), Mr. Peabody And The Mermaid (1948), How To Marry A Millionaire (1953) and Mr. Roberts (1955) during his time here. After he finished shooting Mr. Roberts he retired from films, and he and "Mousie" made this Palm Springs home their permanent residence. Powell died in Palm Springs on March 5, 1984. There is a plaque at the front gate noting the couple lived here.
