Various makeups during the pre-production for “A Nightmare on Elm Street”.
The first makeup shows a much older looking Freddy as Wes originally envisioned Freddy as an older man but found that all of the older actors auditioned had a softness to them.
David Warner was actually cast and the first few makeups reflect that but he eventually had to drop out out before Robert, pictured in the final shot in the final Freddy makeup, was cast.
