His most famous assignment was the role of British India commanding officer Stone in Lives of the Bengal Lancers (1935). He had just completed his first (and last) appearance as Scotland Yard Inspector Neilson in Paramount's Bulldog Drummond series when he died of a heart attack, brought on by a rattlesnake bite while he was vacationing in the Hollywood Hills. Sir Guy Standing was the brother of actorsHerbert Standing Jr. and Wyndham Standing, and the father of actress Kay Hammond.
