In the Mars Series episode "Power", there is a clip of some astronauts in spacesuits. One is seen getting a handful of dirt in his gloved hand. I remember this movie from way back when. I believe it was sometime in the late 50's or early 60's.

It's Conquest of Space, by Byron Haskin (1955).

My picture search for "film 80s blue space suit red planet" led me here, where some guy discusses fashion in space films. Good read for historical value.

Here's a relevant part of the film:

From Wikipedia summary:

The storyline concerns the first interplanetary flight to the planet Mars, manned by a crew of five, and launched from Earth orbit near "The Wheel", mankind's first space station. On their long journey to the Red Planet, they encounter various dangers, both from within and without, that nearly destroy the mission.
