object still visible off stage

I am trying to do something that I thought would be quite simple, but apparently may not be. I have created a very simple swf (call it movie_1) that has a large picture (larger than the stage area) that pans from right to left across the stage. I have set my publish settings to 150 by 125 and the picture is 300 by 125. When I publish the movie and show it, either by itself or in an HTML page, everything looks as it should. The picture pans from right to left and I can only see the part of the picture that is supposed to be on the stage at any given time. However...

When I import the .swf into another flash movie (call it movie_2), and I publish movie_2, I can see the whole picture from movie_1, even the area that is supposed to be off stage. It still pans and everything, but I don't want to see the part of the picture that is supposed to be off stage (and therefore not visible). I want movie_1 to look just as it does when I look at it alone.

Is there anyway to solve this? I have tried various publish settings, but to no avail.
