AND AS YOU PEOPLE CAN SEE IN MY FIRST MESSAGE IT IS CLEARLY WRITTEN GUSTAF ADOLF AND NO SHE DIDN'T DIE IN A CAR ACCIDENT SHE DIED OF BLOODCANCER 1972!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There's no need to scream. There's nothing wrong with correcting Corbis' captions. But if you post the wrong thing, regardless of where you get it, ppl are naturally going to comment.
