I remember just assuming he must be Spanish, and the surprise to discover he was actually German.
And that Peter Falk/Columbo was really Italian...when in fact he was of eastern European stock.
In fact, both men were Jewish...and short in stature.
Falk was only 5' 6", and Sachs was only 5' 4"!
They both left their mark and had a good innings; both, sadly, succumbing to dementia.
