TMOST line from GR: Earth-Mars conditions?? That's a pretty wide range of temps and atmospheres (or lack thereof)!
It was the mid-sixties, maybe GR meant the planet Mars as in Barsoom, and not the planet Mars that was later found to be.

Fantasy, not reality.

Since he wanted Spock to be a red Martian, you're probably not too far off the mark.
