Extends MovieClip to provide additional timeline controlling functions: playBackwards and gotoAndPlayBackwards.
Since:
Flash Player 7
Example:
this.backwards_mc.gotoAndPlayBackwards("frameLabel");
Usage note:
When calling timeline contolling functions (stop, gotoAndStop, play and gotoAndPlay) from inside a MovieClip extended by Reverse ALWAYS prefix with this. Example:

this.stop();

This way the class' methods will handle the call instead of the global function equivalent.
