I agree that McDowall is ALL wrong for Nick. Did he do this screen test just as a favor, or was he seriously being considered for the role? I realize that Nichols' casting was often not "on the nose," but McDowall seems almost the opposite of the kind of presence Nick is supposed to be. It never occurred to me that George Segal was an odd choice for the role, even if he's not 100 percent ideal.
My other comment on this screen test is that I find the pacing almost unbearably slow.
