Trouble loading external images

I am trying to simply load an external .jpg, and I am simply not getting it. I am using Flash CS3. The following code was shamelessly lifted from Actionscript 3.0 Cookbook, and I removed the package and class info. The image “img1.JPG” is found in the same folder as the .fla file. Each time I run the program, I just get a white screen. Where I am going wrong? TIA for an answer. --4hov13 ================== import flash.display.Sprite; import flash.display.Loader; import; import; // page 204 ascb var _loader:Loader = new Loader(); function BitmapLoader() { _loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, onComplete); _loader.load(new URLRequest(“img1.JPG”)); } function onComplete(event:Event):void { var image:Bitmap = Bitmap(_loader.content); var bitmap:BitmapData = image.bitmapData; addChild(image); } =================
