This short silent footage captures a screen test of film actress Isabel McDonagh (who acted under her stage name, Marie Lorraine), circa 1926.

Isabel was the eldest of the three McDonagh sisters who were famous for being the first Australian women to own and run a film production company in the 1920s. 

While this film is of poor quality and has suffered significant deterioration, it is extremely rare for a screen test from this period to have survived.
