Melville Brown possessed a strong directorial eye, and consequently, he found a career as a director.

(1925). He continued to work in film in the twenties and the thirties, directing motion pictures like "13 Washington Square" (1928), "Red Lips" (1928) and "Geraldine" (1929). He also appeared in the comedy "Check and Double Check" (1930) with Freeman F Gosden and "Lovin' the Ladies" (1930). Nearing the end of his career, Brown directed "Behind Office Doors" (1931), "Fanny Foley Herself" (1931) and "White Shoulders" (1931).
