Michael Corleone Realizes He Has Nerves of Steel in "THE GODFATHER" (Paramount, 1972)

Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) goes to the hospital to check on his father after an assassination attempt.

He finds the Don's armed guards have all been banished by a crooked police captain.

Michael moves his father to safety, then enlists the aid of Enzo the baker, a family friend.

They pretend to be armed in order to ward off a gang of hitmen.

Enzo is so shaken and scared that Michael must light his cigarette.

That's when Michael notices that his own hands aren't shaking at all.

We're allowed to notice it, too.  Important as it is, it's a very subtle moment.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!
