Nightmare on Elm Street, A - A Really Bad Scene!
At the end of the Movie, when the mother gets sucked into the window in the door, her dress is white, her head is turned to the right, and she is a real person. Then they go to Nancy in the car, then when they come back to the mother, her dress is off-white, her head is turned to the left, she is clearly a dummy, and one of the blades on Freddy's glove (which is sucking her into the house through the window in the door) bends, showing that it was made of plastic, not metal.

Perhaps back then(in the 80's), they did the best they could with the special effects, since they really didn't rely on computers the way they do now for all the movies special effects. I have never noticed that when I watched the movie. At least they tried to make it look real, as opposed to the computers now and days, as where you can tell right away in the movies that it is a graphic.

Actually, Freddy's glove IS made out of metal. I've watched to commentary on it, and it was real steel. They may have used another glove, but I highly doubt. They wanted to use a fake for the scene where Glenn is being sucked into his bed by Freddy, but Wes (or at least I think it was Wes) insisted on using the real one.
