1.Henry Fonda
2.Kirk Douglas
3.Toshiro Mifune (the arrow through the neck scene is amazing)
4.Andy Griffith
5.Tony Curtis

1) Henry Fonda
2) Kirk Douglas
3) Toshiro Mifune
4) Tony Curtis
5) Andy Griffith

I've never seen Griffith, but the other four are some of the best performances I've ever seen, Fonda's stoic striving for fairness, Douglas' impassioned attempt to have justice prevail, Mifune gave a better Macbeth than any I've ever seen, and Curtis' smug yet desperate snake was pitch perfect. I wouldn't be able to choose between them.
