time, but it sort of depends on the way the original person wrote the
movie you are playing. If they have initialization code in movie handlers
like "on startMovie" or "on prepareMovie", probably others I can't think
of, just rewinding to frame 1 won't execute them again and might cause
malfunction in the second play. For instance if it's something that keeps
score and the score vars are init'd in a startmovie handler.
