How do I correct the capitalization on a person's name?

A film I've been finishing up was recently added to imdb.  The composer of the film's name is Luc LaChapelle.  As he's listed on imdb, (this is his first credit) The C in his last name is not capitalized but it should be.  I honestly don't know if this is my mistake or if it was autocorrected when it was put into the database.  He's asked that I correct this but I can't seem to.  The contributor zone isn't recognizing a change when I capitalize the C and automatically rejects my correction.  How can I do this?

Give it a day or two. I'm just a contributor user not an employee

Cliff,

Sorry to say that the explanation you give is absolutely wrong! In France French, it would either be "Lachapelle" ou "La Chapelle"
"LaChapelle" is a very common americanization of European names (e.g. Leonardo DiCaprio)

There is hardly any Vietnamese French left :) I do not know for Haiti.
As far as I know, Quebec French follows the European French rules, even though, through history, all articles have been attached to the main noun (e.g. Lafleur, Laliberté).
And I believe African French (the most numerous French speaking population) is not subject to this question!

Nothing wrong with the americanization, every culture does it indeed! It just helps to grasp the context better ;)
