Save for The Lone Ranger (television/B&W only), I have one western that just is so far ahead of the others for me, that I will only mention it:

yes, that is a good one, so I'm sure you seen the almost identical twin of that movie.
"El Dorado" with Robert Mitchum playing the drunk sheriff.

Just once in memory.  I do remember that John Wayne wore the same shirt, vest, and hat, but I believe he did that in all his westerns. ;D

  This is incredibly difficult to narrow down to 5 and 5!  I'm such a big fan of the 50-60 minute "oaters" from the 30's, 40's and early 50's, but I can't reasonably rank them with the many feature length bigger budget westerns.  I love almost all the movies mentioned so far, so I''ll just add two that haven't been mentioned but are definitely in my top 5.  "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" and "Ride the High Country".   
 
   For actors:
  Tim Holt
  John Wayne
  Randolph Scott
  Gary Cooper
  Roy Rogers
