The film was apparently shot in reverse. The ending scenes of the house completely intact were shot first. The rest of the time the people in charge of the set slowly destroyed the house until it looked like it did in the beginning of the movie. When the production ended, the entire cast and crew left town and left the house and property in a shambles. The owner of the property at that time left town as well and never came back... It later became a drug rehab center in 1988 and they added lots of drywall and shoddy construction to repair the damage done to the house by the "movie people"...

This seems to be the first movie ever produced by successful independant producers Miramax Pictures.

Playing For Keeps was one of the first movies that Marisa Tomei (Tracy) made. At the time Playing For Keeps was made she was 22 years old.

Wow... this brings back alot of GREAT college memories... I was attending East Stroudsburg University and was an extra in this movie... My 2 friends and I were referred to as the "Troublesome Threesome" by many of the production crew... The actors and actresses used to hang out in 1 RV in between shots and scenes and we were right there with them...
