Movie1(x1, x2, x3, x4, x5)
function theResult = Movie1(x1, x2, x3, x4, x5)

% Movie1 -- Show a movie.
%  Movie1(...) uses the movie() syntax to show a movie.
%   It avoids the unpleasant behavior of the Matlab movie()
%   routine, which shows the film first during loading, then
%   again at the requested speed, or as fast as possible,
%   whichever is slower.
%  Movie1(nFrames) demonstrates itself with nFrames (default = 16),
%   at four frames per second.
%  theResult = Movie1(nFrames) returns a demonstration movie
%   of nFrames.  To show theResult, use "movie1(theResult)".
