Another day, another treat here at the Underground Bunker. We have another previously unseen interview that was recorded for Channel 4's excellent 1997 documentary, Secret Lives — L. Ron Hubbard.

This time, we get a glimpse of a time period that rarely gets much treatment — Hubbard's first marriage, to Margaret "Polly" Grubb, as witnessed by a neighbor who got to know the Hubbards pretty well.

Previous segments that we've released from the Secret Lives files have featured Hubbard's literary agent, Forrest Ackerman, his press assistant and lover, Barbara Klowden, one of Hubbard's fellow science fiction colleagues, Arthur Jean Cox, the former mayor of Clearwater, Florida, Gabe Cazares, Hubbard's former medical officer, Jim Dincalci, archivist Gerry Armstrong, and former Los Angeles Times reporter and postwar Hubbard roommate, Nieson Himmel.
