This is an original press photo. At 70, William Powell leads a contented desert life the refuses the invisibility of cancer. It was just 25 years ago that the famed actor learned he was afflicted with rectal cancer , Doctors wanted to remove the career immediately, but he refused. Instead, he submitted to a colon by pass operation and the cancer was treated with radiation. After six months he was pronounced cured. Another operation restored his colon to normalcy. \"I was one of the lucky ones,\" said Powell, aware that a number of his fellow stars have lost their fights with cancer in recent times. \"Fortunately for me, they caught the cancer before it could spread through the lymph glands and the blood stream. When that happens, I guess there isn\'t much hope. And I\'ve never had a recurrence.\" Powell lives in a rambling bungalow in Palm Springs, California with his wife, the former Diana Lewis. They were wed 23 years ago in a May December wedding that wasn\'t supposed to last. She is universally known as Mousie. \"I originated her name,\" Powell said. She was kind of small and cute, like a mouse. Also, because of the disparity of 27 years in our ages, our friends characterized me as Mr. Poo the Cat and her Mousie.\" The union appears to be an ideal one. He speaks with vast administration of her energetic activities, organizing tennis, golf and bowling tournaments, an art society, etc. \"I think its wonderful that she has an outlive her energies, he said cause I lead a rather easy life myself.\" Powell rises a leisurely hour, reads the newspapers, answers mail, tends to his investments and plays golf. He tries to limit participation in Palm Springs\' ever growing social life. Powell has never proclaimed his retirement, but he admitted he has no urge to leave his desert sanctuary. He explained: \"When the offers come, I ask myself, why would I do it? For the glory? The ham in me has been pretty well burned out with the years. For the money? I\'d just be put a higher tax bracket that would eliminate most of what I earned with the job, so I just say no.\" Photo measures 8 x 8.75 inches. Photo is dated 4-30-1963.
