I believe I've heard Osborne talking about Barrymore "before and after his accident."

But Barrymore was crippled due to arthritis.

Louis B. Mayer supplied the actor with cocaine, for which Barrymore was eternally grateful.

"I don't know where he got it," the MGM fixture stated, "but I shall always be thankful."

While Barrymore suffered from RA, he had an accident that resulted in his breaking his hip. The break didn't heal properly and that combined with the RA, caused Barrymore to finally end up in a wheelchair.
