Loading movie onto level trouble

I have a button that is a few levels down in movie clips. When It is pressed, it is supposed to load diamonds.swf. It does this, but not on the first press. On the first press the _root time line goes to and plays “fade,” but doesn’t execute the rest of the script.
Am I missing some code that should be here?

on (press) {
trace (_root._currentframe);
if (_root._currentframe == 26) {

loadMovieNum(“diamonds.swf”, 12);
