I have a movie clip symbol that I want to run once when it appears on the stage.  It keeps repeating now -- how can I stop it?  Thanks.

Drop this code to the movieclip:

onClipEvent(load){
      this.run = true;
}
onClipEvent(enterFrame){
      if(!this.run)return
      if(this._currentframe == this._totalframes){
            this.run = false;
            this.gotoAndStop(1);
      }
}
