Biography[edit]

Standing, a popular leading man in the silent film era, appeared in 131 films between 1915 and 1948. He and Ronald Colman starred in the now lost classic The Dark Angel (1925). He delivered a memorable performance in Hell's Angels (1930) as the commanding officer who gets fed up with the cowardly antics of Ben Lyon and James Hall before sending them off on a deadly bombing mission.

Standing was born in London, England and died in Los Angeles, California. He was the son of veteran actor Herbert Standing (1846–1923) and the brother of actors Jack Standing, Sir Guy Standing, Herbert Standing Jr. and Percy Standing. He was also the uncle of Joan Standing and Kay Hammond.[3]
