    Simple MovieClip won't play

    Neat Gadget
      All I want to do is play this movieclip. The movie clip is a backdrop, plus dynamic text. The text blinks, ie showing then not showing. The clip goes for about 30 frames. I labelled the movieclip myMovie, and labelled the instance myMovie. Quite simply, it won't play. It seems the most basic thing, but yet nothing I try allows it to work.

      I created a graphic, converted it to a movieclip

      Then dragged the instance of the movieclip to the stage

      Then added the following code

      _root.myMovie.play();

      Then used Test Movie and nothing happens apart from showing the first frame of the movieclip
