Five eight in his prime when he could stand up straight. But by the early thirties he walked slightly bent over causing him to appear shorter. By 1937 he was in a wheelchair suffering from a combination of rheumatoid arthritis and a broken hip which never healed properly. Turns out Barrymore broke his hip twice.

There was a huge mystique over the Barrymores which added height to both John and Lionel. Of the two brothers, Lionel was the taller. John was no more than five seven. Both actor's studio publicity listed them as being six feet tall which was ridiculous. But then, much of Hollywood publicity was and still is filled with make believe.
