At 16 Browning had left his well to do family to join a traveling circus, he drew on his personal experiences for Freaks. Because of his success as the director of Dracula he was given a considerable leeway for a major studio's first horror film, this and the fact he was working in Pre-Code Hollywood enabled a unique production. In the film, the physically deformed "freaks" are inherently trusting and honorable people, while the real monsters are two of the "normal" members of the circus who conspire to murder one of the performers to obtain his large inheritance.
