The Last Remake of Beau Geste?
Well, it's in B&W and does hint of North Africa...(the clue is slightly misleading, it should be friends rather than siblings)

I will accept either of two answers....and as there are only a handful of questions unsolved, perhaps open it up to unlimited guesses...

In that case

15) Sons of the Desert
20) Duck Soup

I'm curious what the alternative answer for 15 might be. I'll put my thoughts towards that and also what 19 might be.

Both correct...I'll let you stew over the alternate to (15) but it does involve part of the correct answer though not in the title. (19) is an animation..

Interesting fact. Whilst researching the L&H film I discovered that they released a film called Duck Soup in 1927, six years before the (arguably better known) Marx Brothers Film also called Duck Soup.

Yes, I came across the same thing, though I can't say I know anything about either. I worked with someone at BT who was a member of the L&H appreciation society and I'm sure would have waxed lyrical about Duck Soup...though I prefer my version, Duck!!...Soup!!...

There was, quite some years ago, a season (probably on BBC2) of Marx Brothers films and I made sure that I watched as many as possible. I did get to watch Duck Soup (as well as earlier quiz answer A Night At The Opera) during that time. Happy days.
