I took a look at 13 Ghosts--a movie that, while fun, almost makes The Curse of the Cat People look in league with The Battleship Potemkin, I have to say--and it turns out that Dr. Plato Zorba's house is indeed the Waters (and, later, Julia Farren) house at 900 West Adams. Straight from the DVD:

900 West Adams's last starring role, 1960

A view from the porch of 900 toward the arbor--note the decay at the base of the column. Is
it set decoration? Anyway, the end is nigh.

Margaret Hamilton as Elaine Zacharides in front of Dr. Zorba's portrait. (No, not Dr. Kildare's Dr. Zorba.)

Columbia Pictures/Sony
A precursor of Christopher Moltisanti's breakout film, as well as Miss DeCamp's star turn. 13 Ghosts
is one of those old movies enjoyable for its primitive special effects, such as milk bottles and cleavers flying
through the air on thin wires.

The County Museum in Exposition Park, before its move to the Miracle Mile.
