He did not make his screen debut until the age of 60. Standing specialized in crusty authoritarian roles, often military men. His most famous role was probably Colonel Stone, in 1935’s ‘Lives of the Bengal Lancers’. His career spanned some twenty movies and countless stage performances. He had landed the lucrative serial role of Scotland Yard Inspector Neilson for the Bulldog Drummond series in 1937, completing ‘Bulldog Drummond Escapes’ before taking a vacation in the Hollywood Hills. He was bitten by a rattlesnake during his trip which induced a fatal heart attack.
