Once a loaded movie has unloaded, it can not send any more actions
because, well, it's gone. ...This seems like a fairly straight forward

However, a loaded movie can address the base movie quite easily using a
tell target action. All you need to do is specify: _level0 (underscore
level zero) as your target in the Tell Target action UI, and the base
movie at level0 will recieve the action.

So to do what you want, you would have to first send the tell target
action to _level0 to make it goto your chosen frame #/label, THEN
implement the unload movie command for the current level that the movie
is on.

Hope that helps!
