How do I delete/correct an incorrect title picture?

The live-action film _Rikki-Tikki-Tavi_ (1975) (originally Russian _Рикки-Тикки-Тави_) has the picture of the VHS release of the Chuck Jones animated short "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi" of the same name/year.  How would I (or someone else) get that corrected?  It doesn't seem to be in the normal editing form.  They are different films (one live-action, one animated) that confusingly share the same title, year, and story.

This is the one that has the wrong picture:  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073627/

This is the animated short that it is being confused with:  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0175122/

Hi Taed Wynnell,

This is probably a good place to report this kind of problem, since this is not something available on the editing form. I will flag this for IMDb staff attention, since I am a long time user and not a member of the staff.

I've confirmed the problem you reported.

According to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073627/releaseinfo
Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (1975) (<a title="Link http//wwwimdbcom/title/tt0073627/" href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073627/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073627/</a>)  was first released in Hungary on 10 November 1983. It is also known as Riki-Tiki-Tévi (Hungary), Rikki Tikki Tavi nella giungla (Italy) and Рикки-Тикки-Тави (Russian Title). This is a production of Soviet Union and India.

You indicated in your post that this film is a live action film. Do you have a reference that can verify that this is a live action film? It is currently listed as an animated film.

This Russian language Wikipedia article seems to also indicate this is a live action film.
https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A0%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%BA%D0%B8-%D0%A2%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%BA%D0%B8-%D0%A2%D...

This is obviously not a Chuck Jones production, so the image for the film is misleading. There are no other images in the image gallery, so IMDb may not have access to the an appropriate image. IMDb may decide to retain the current image due to the lack of a replacement.

Hi Taed and Dan -

Since the image reported does appear to belong to the other title listing of the same name, I have adjusted the image so that it will no longer be linked to the Hungary version here.

We currently do not have an image for this version to add, so the title listing will remain without a poster for the time being.
