A former circus clown, Bing studied music in Germany and entered vaudeville in 1905. He apprenticed under director F.W. Murnau and moved to Hollywood in 1927 where he worked as a writer and assistant director on the film "Sunrise." He went on to assist directors John Ford and Frank Borzage while establishing himself as a character actor usually playing comic roles as a waiter or stage manager. Famous for his wild eyed expressions, Bing was also a noted opera singer. After WWII and despondent over his fading career, Herman shot himself.
