Michael Corleone

Michael Corleone is the main protagonist of Mario Puzo's novel, The Godfather. In the three Godfather films, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, Michael was portrayed by Al Pacino, for which he was twice-nominated for Academy Awards. Michael is the youngest son of a Sicilian immigrant who builds a Mafia empire. Upon his father’s death, Michael succeeds him as the don of the Corleone crime family. In June 2003, Michael Corleone was recognized as the 11th most iconic villain in film history by the American Film Institute, although some critics consider him to be a tragic hero. Born in 1920 to Mafia don Vito Corleone and his wife Carmela, Michael has two older brothers, Santino "Sonny" Corleone and Frederico "Fredo" Corleone, a younger sister, Constanzia "Connie" Corleone; the family consigliere, Tom Hagen, is their informal adoptive brother. Unlike his two older brothers, Michael renounces the Corleone “family business”, wanting instead to lead a more Americanized life. Vito does not want Michael to join the Corleone criminal empire either, hoping that his favorite son goes into politics.

Michael enrolls in Dartmouth College, but drops out to enlist in the United States Marine Corps after the attack on Pearl Harbor, when the United States enters World War II. During the war, he fights in both the Pacific and European Theaters, is wounded in battle. For his bravery, he receives a battlefield commission to the rank of captain, is awarded the Silver Star and the Navy Cross, his heroics during the war are featured in Life magazine. During the summer of 1945, Michael is discharged from the Marines, unaware that Vito secretly arranged for his release, he returns home to attend his sister Connie's wedding, accompanied by Kay Adams, his college sweetheart. Michael stays for a few weeks before re-entering college without telling his family. Just before Christmas 1945, Vito is wounded in an assassination attempt by drug kingpin Virgil Sollozzo, pushing a reluctant Michael into the Mafia world he has avoided for so long. Arriving at the hospital, he finds his father vulnerable. While awaiting Corleone reinforcements, Michael prevents a second assassination attempt on Vito by Sollozzo affirms his loyalty to his father.

Captain Mark McCluskey, a corrupt NYPD officer on Sollozzo's payroll, breaks Michael's jaw before more Corleone button men arrive. Sollozzo requests that Michael broker a truce, but acting boss Sonny, suspecting a trap and demands the other Mafia families hand over Sollozzo to the Corleone family or else face war. Michael suggests taking Sollozzo's meeting but in a public place. Hagen warns that killing McCluskey would violate a long-standing Mafia rule not to kill police officers, says it would incite deadly backlash from rival Mafia families and law enforcement. Michael argues they can publicly expose McCluskey as a corrupt cop involved in the drug trade and serving as Sollozzo's bodyguard, contending that McCluskey has crossed into their world and is fair game. Sonny approves the hit. Michael meets with McCluskey at an Italian restaurant in The Bronx, he retrieves a handgun that Corleone caporegime Peter Clemenza had planted beforehand in the bathroom and kills Sollozzo and McCluskey. This ignites the New York underworld's first Mafia war in a decade.

Michael spends two years under Corleone ally Don Tommasino's protection. Michael marries a young local woman named Apollonia Vitelli. After Michael is notified of Sonny's murder, he and Apollonia prepare to move to Siracusa, but she is killed by a car bomb meant for Michael. Michael assumes Sonny's role as Vito's heir apparent. After Vito's suspicions are confirmed that Don Emilio Barzini, his main rival in New York City, is the power behind Sollozzo and Tattaglia, he and Michael begin a secret, complex plot to wipe out the other New York Dons, they deliberately allow their rivals to whittle away at Corleone interests to lull them into inaction. Meanwhile, Michael convinces his father. More than a year following his return, Michael reunites with Kay and they marry, he promises her the Corleone family will be legitimate in five years. Within two years, they have two children and Mary. Vito semi-retires in 1954, Michael becomes operating head of the family, he offers to buy out casino owner Moe Greene's stake in the Las Vegas casino that the Corleones bankrolled, intending to move the family to Nevada as part of his effort to legitimize the Corleone interests.

Shortly before his death in 1955, Vito warns Michael that Barzini will attempt to assassinate Michael under the pretense of negotiating peace between the families. Whoever approaches Michael about the meeting is the traitor within the family; when longtime caporegime Salvatore Tessio tells Michael at his father's funeral that Barzini wants to arrange a meeting, Michael sets the plan in motion to murder the other New York Mafia heads: Barzini, Philip Tattaglia, Carmine Cuneo, Victor Stracci, as well as Greene. The plot unfolds on the same day; the same day, he has Tessio and Carlo Rizzi, Connie's abusive husband who conspired in Sonny's murder, executed. In one stroke, Michael re-establishes the Corleone family as the nation's most powerful crime family, establishes a reputation as being

A deposit slip is a form supplied by a bank for a depositor to fill out, designed to document in categories the items included in the deposit transaction. The categories include type of item, if it is a cheque, where it is from such as a local bank or a state if the bank is not local; the teller keeps the deposit slip along with the deposit, provides the depositor with a receipt. They are filled in a store and not a bank, so it is convenient in paying, they are a means of transport of money. Pay-in slips encourage the sorting of cash and coins, are filled in and signed by the person who deposited the money, some tear off from a record, filled in by the depositor. Deposit slips are called deposit tickets and come in a variety of designs, they are signed by the depositor if the depositor is cashing some of the accompanying check and depositing the rest.

The bank's transit number called bank number, began to be used instead of words; the bank number was written as the upper line of a fraction, with the bottom number referring to the central bank branch. Some people wrote just the top of the fraction, others tried writing the entire fraction. After the introduction of automated sorting of checks, many people wrote nothing at all in the deposit slip's description column; some people put the check writers' names in the description column. There was a tendency in the early teens of the 21st century to write in the number of the check being deposited without mentioning who the check was from.
