We can try to rebuild your iPhoto Library and see if that works or not..

Rebuild iPhoto Library
  1. Quit iPhoto if it is open.
  2. Hold down the Command and Option keys on the keyboard.
  3. Open iPhoto.
  4. Keep the keys held down until you are prompted to rebuild the library.
  5. A dialog will appear with rebuild options. Select all the options/checkboxes
  6. Click Rebuild to begin the rebuild process. This may take a few minutes to complete.

If that didn't worked then rebuild your iPhoto Library with this application, iPhoto Library Manager (just try the trial version) :

Please follow the instructions in here to rebuild your iPhoto Library with iPhoto Library Manager :

Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting. Don't Rate my answer until you are satisfied.
