A man arrives on a planet (think he had no spacesuit on) and he
walks a ways then meets a fellow (think it was an old man)
who shows him an archive (underground) where all
the knowledge of their civilization is kept

Then .. . me mum came and ran me off to bed.
It was back in the late 50s or early 60s when
no kid was supposed to be up after 11 pm watching TV.

Any ideas what the film was? (TV was black & white so no idea on film color)

Actually sounds like The Phantom Planet, which was featured on an episode of MST3K.  It came out in 1961.

Your description vaguely matches Forbidden Planet (1956), when Morbius (Walter Pidgeon age 59) shows Commander Adams (Leslie Nielson! age 30) around the Krell underground.

I highly recommend this good movie. Thumbup Thumbup Thumbup Thumbup Thumbup

Sorry, maybe I should have listed some of the films I know it is not,

Not
   forbidden planet,
   phantom planet,
   rocketshipxm,
   voyage to prehistoric planet,
   voyate to planet of prehist..women,
   first spaceship on venus,

There was one unsuited man arriving in a rocket and
meeting one unsuited man who showed him
the archive of "all their knowledge"
In many ways it reminded me of the 1937 film Lost Horizon so maybe it
was from the 30s (all I know is I saw in in the late 50s)

Flight to Mars maybe?

Another possibility is World Without End, which had the underground civilization, though it was a future Earth and not another planet.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

No it wasn't   flight to mars
Nor  World without end  (but thanks for the tips, that was an interesting film)
Also it wasn't Cat women of the moon

These films all had groups of 4 or more people

In the movie I'm looking for there was ONE man, as I said earlier.
Phantom Planet filled the bill of ONE man arriving but
he was more or less kidnapped by the people of the planet
He did not walk down from his spaceship and meet an old man.

Well, maybe it's one of those movies that aren't around anymore. Thanks for trying guys.

Possibly FIRE-MAIDENS OF OUTER SPACE (1956)? Actually that one seems fairly unlikely as you'd be far more likely to remember the scantily clad women, actually about the only thing memorable at all, than the old man in the film.

While not in outer space per se, BEYOND THE TIME BARRIER (1960) has a scene somewhat similar to the one you described...where a man in a new rocket powered airplane ends up in the future and meets an underground civilization.

Just seen Beyond the time barrier (one of the better sci-fi films of the 50s)
NO. That is not the film I'm looking for at all, although it fulfills requirements 1,2 below.

My film had these features
  (1) ONE man   (as in Phantom Planet, Beyond the time barrier) no GROUP as in
        Forbidden Planet, Fire Maidens,First spaceship on venus etc
  (2) he wears no space suit, no goofy flash-gordan outfit, and walks through earth-like environment (as in World without end, Fire Maidens, beyond the time barrier)
  (3) meets another man, ONE MAN, who lives there (as in Forbidden Planet)
  (4) gets taken to a large, huge, immense room
   (5) told that all the knowledge of their civilization is stored there (never seen
       this yet, although Forbidden planet has something similar)
   (6) no idea what came next

The film was seen in the 60s or 50s.

Bit of a stretch given your outline but perhaps FIRST MEN IN THE MOON (1964)? In that, there is a scene in which an helmetless Cavor (pretty sure he is wearing a type of spacesuit though) is brought before the alien leader named the Grand Lunar, thoroughly fascinated by the alien civilization (can't recall offhand if they offered to show him an archive of knowledge or not). In essence here, humanity represented by Cavor is interrogated by the Selenites.

I also wonder if this might not possibly be from a movie serial or a film made from parts of a movie serial?

In regard to the suggestions about
  First men in the moon,  Project Moon base, 12 to the moon and night of the
  blood beast.

I am unable to decide if
   (a) you are just trying to be funny
   (b) you think I am asking you to post names of your favorite badmovies
   (c) you just didn't read my search criteria
Obviously none of the films above have the remotest resemblance to the description I gave earlier.
For all the people who earlier tried their best to help, thank you. I am
now giving up the search through this forum.

No need to be rude to people who are just trying to help you on a volunteer basis.  Since you give up, I'll move the post to the unsolved archives.
