I've seen the original black and white "Egyptian Daze." It doesn't end with the "Screen Attractions" card, but rather the usual Astra TV "The End" with the sunset. The Screen Attraction cel was probably from another production, and mixed up while being redrawn.

Glad to hear. Still doesn't mean that there might be a different version Ladd used as a source with it as the end title.
By the by, where did you find the B&W version of it? Stathes' DVDs?

Considering the "Screen Attractions" card was set upon the sunset background, I would still have to imagine that there was a cel mixup. I'm not entirely sure where the print came from, but it turned up on the Cartoon Research Twitch Stream a few times. Here are some clips of the titles:

Thanks! Seems that opening intertitle ("Hey! Stop smoking that camel and give it a drink!") was spliced out of Ladd's version.
(As a side note, I just hope that there's more Astra prints out there with different music than just the same sharples beds over and over...)
