The Schwarzwald Inn Gallery of Fame: the formidable Joe & Larry Schmidt
Singing brothers and favorites of the gals, tenor Joe (left) and baritone Larry (right) boasted a repertoire spanning "From Wagner to Verdi to Irving Berlin". Seen here at "the Schwarz" with boxer Sonny Liston and the young George W. Bush.
Rumors of the Schmidts' ties to organized crime were always denied by the two burly brothers and their attorneys, and although frequently indicted neither brother was ever convicted of a felony.
