Help me identfiy this movie from the late 1960's or early 1970's.

I saw this movie on television when I was child, but can't remember much about it. As I recall, there was a dark-haired boy who had lost his mother (or parents). I'm guessing that the story is set during a war or some type of tragedy. In the story, accompanied by a woman he doesn't know, they walk amongst rubble of some desert or village. It could have been set in the Middle East, but it was an English language film.

That reminds me strongly of scenes from Hope and Glory, a WWII-themed film from the UK.

How about the Aussie film, Walkabout?

Empire of the Sun? ... but that's 1987

Unfortunately, it's none of these. Walkabout repeatedly came up in my Google results, but that's not it.

By any chance is it I Love You Rosa (1972)? It was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film (Israel) but dubbed versions exist.

Central Station, maybe? It's in Portuguese initially, but maybe an Englsh dub was shown on TV.

It's not "I Love You Rosa" and Central Station is too current. I believe the boy is the protagonist.
