It's weird... it's still not working.

When dzedward put this:
... the idea is that you'd have to use an instance name you gave the
background movie clip. You can do this via the Property inspector when that
movie clip is selected on the Stage. Instance names give ActionScript a
unique reference for each object, so that objects can call each other by
name, so to speak, and tell each other what to do.
If you didn't provide the instance name bgmovieclipinstancename, it
wouldn't work. Use whatever instance name makes sense to you (perhaps
bgMovieClip) and use that in your path reference.
_root will probably work in this case, if both of these objects are in
the main timeline. See this article for a bit more detail on _root in
ActionScript 1.0 and 2.0.
