You don't have any spaces between the command and the argument,
I would assume they'd be necessary. I also notice you are quoting
the quotes here, so I presume you actually need them (maybe this is
because you have an embedded space in the filename?).

Need I mention that using filenames with spaces is a great evil? ;-)
