Winton C. Hoch's IMDb Page (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005743/) needs primary image.

There is already an image of him on the database, but that is not showing as primary image.

There are two issues here, sorry.   The first is that this was submitted as an "Idea" which is reserved for feature ideas only; if you need something to be immediately actioned by the team then please use either the "Question" or "Problem" types as appropriate. The second is that an IMDbPro subscription attached to the specific name page is required to control a primary image as explained on http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?addphoto

Ok. Suppose no one claims that page, then it'll remain unchanged?

Looks that way, an IMDb Pro account is needed to claim the page.

Can't an exception be made for people who are no longer living?

It could ... the best way to achieve that would be to post it a separate "Idea" here with examples and see what support it gets.  The team regularly review Ideas here when deciding what things to build or changes to make.

I might make that suggestion (just not now, because I'm not a hundred percent sure what the exact rules are regarding adding/correcting photos nowadays because I've also seen hundreds and hundreds of photos being added to name pages with the new photo adding system while I've also read somewhere this can't/shouldn't happen), but I do want to say it feels silly to point out something I have just pointed out and has been read by IMDb.
