That would be Terry, the dog who most famously played Toto in The Wizard of Oz. Unlike many actors, she made an unusually smooth transition from child star to adult performer.

Judith Evelyn?

Yes, good job!  I was surprised to discover how few films she made, although she apparently did a fair amount of TV (she was primarily a stage actress).  I remember her mainly as Miss Lonelyhearts in Rear Window (a role performed almost entirely in medium long-shots), and as Rock Hudson's mother in Giant.

Your move.  :-)

Wilfred Hyde-White.  News to me: he was declared bankrupt in 1979 and spent his last 25 years living in the U.S.  His son Alex Hyde-White is also an actor--mostly on TV, but also occasionally in films, including Ishtar, Pretty Woman, and Catch Me if You Can.

(Re Citizen Kane, I sometimes deliberately avoid mentioning someone's best-known film, in order to make the answer less immediately obvious.  In this case I hoped the scene in Kiss Me Deadly where Ralph Meeker destroys one of Fortunio Bonanova's beloved Enrico Caruso 78s might be memorable enough.)  :-)

The Long Voyage Home (1940)

The Great Mr. Handel (1942)

War and Peace (1956)

Raf Vallone.  Interesting that he was both a professional football player and a film and drama critic: possibly a unique combination.

Capucine was a strikingly beautiful, intelligent, and aristocratic-looking actress (and former model) who often had a slightly melancholy, faraway quality onscreen.  Perhaps not unrelated that she ultimately committed suicide, alas.  Probably best remembered today for her appearances in many Pink Panther films.

Next:

Song Without End (1960)

El Cid (1961)

Youngblood Hawke (1964)

Belle de Jour (1967)

The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970)

Hint: this fine actress shares a last name with an Oscar-winning (and frequently nominated) American actress, although the actress we're looking for is not herself American.  Their first names are also oddly similar (same number of syllables, and starting and ending with the same letters).
