Downloading posters from Amazon

I tried this once before and got lost.  I have a list of home movies in
a JSON file and I use the internet to retrieve movie data that goes into
the JSON file.  I then download the image poster from Amazon.  I'm using
ooREXX to do the work.  Here is a sample of what I get:

   150 *-*       address system with output stream (poster_jpg);
    152 *-*       "curl -L -O" poster
        >L>         "curl -L -O"
        >V>         POSTER =>
        >O>         " " => "curl -L -O"
        >>>         "curl -L -O"
        >V>         POSTER_JPG =>
        >K>         "OUTPUT" =>
   % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time Time  Current
                                  Dload  Upload   Total   Spent Left  Speed
100 24550  100 24550    0     0  24550      0  0:00:01 --:--:-- 0:00:01 

I don't really understand wht is going on and am not into CURL. Is the
output showing that I downloaded 24550 bytes?  If so, then why does the
file manager say I only downloaded zero.  Is there something else I
should be doing.  I hope someone can help.
