New contributor trying to figure out how to argue about a rejected submission

My  contribution was rejected for reasons I don't understand.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026027

Displays as "1, 000 Dollars a Minute" when the actual title is "$1,000 A Minute". I know the space in there are the dollar sign instead of the word may not matter to most of you, but it does to me because it is not accurate. The blurb I read about titles says that you pull the title from the titlecard in the movie. Well, here it is:

Steve: I'm not sure why an alternate title is displaying for you, but the official IMDb title for this film is $1,000 A Minute as I see it at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026027/.

1, 000 Dollars a Minute with the odd space in the middle of the number is shown as an alternate title at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026027/releaseinfo/ .

That said, there is no comma in the amount as shown on the title screen you provided, and the word "a" is not supposed to be capitalized in English-language titles, so I would have submitted the title as $1000 a Minute instead.

@gromit82​ Thanks for the input, this is what I’m seeing (even on my phone it displays the same title):

The alternate titles for this film are a little messy in IMDb.  We have submitted corrections to tidy this up which should be live shortly.

Thanks, Col. Can you shed some light on how I should have handled my request differently, so I know for next time?

Handled differently? What was the reference number of the submission involved?
