Berta, i don't think that site is to trust. Brad Pitt is listed at 6 feet..
Brad A. says on 19/Apr/14

You can put anything you want on a driving license as you fill the forms in at home and send them off in the post!

His driver's license says 5'8, kinda looks like a 6 but it's an 8.
berta says on 28/Dec/13
look again brother Click Here i dont think we can trust the driver license but if it says 56 then he is probably not that mutch taller maybe close to 57
Robby D says on 25/Dec/13

Looks more 5'6" range in East of Eden. Short even for his generation.
HRG says on 28/Sep/13
Rob, do you think that he could be 5 ft 8 tall?
Powerhouse says on 1/Sep/13
looks at least 2 1/2 inches shorter than Brando, I think Dean was about 5'6 but he cant be over 5'6.5
Elvis says on 26/Aug/13
I'm 5ft 7in and it's a weird height to be because it isn't that short but it's in the short range.
If I was 5ft 9in it wouldn't be an issue because that's average but 5ft 7in or 5ft 8in is just on the cusp of being a decent height but just not close enough.
Arch Stanton says on 6/Aug/13
Rob have you seen Rebel without a Cause? He had at least 2 inches on Sal Mineo but looked proportionally 5'7" tops. Mineo looked around 5'5" in the film I thought and he was only about 16 at the time. I see a 5'8" listing for him on the database but he looked nowhere near that in the film. Possible that he grew a few inches afterwards you think?

Brando was 174cm in my opinion.
[Editor Rob: probably was 5ft 5 range]
al says on 5/Aug/13
We know that Brando is between 5'8 and 5'9,so 5'6.25 is fair for Dean i think.
Sam says on 22/Jul/13
He could look close to 3 inches shorter than Marlon Brando, and it is known that Brando wasn't a tall guy.

5'7.5". He did like to wear large heeled engineer boots though
Elvis says on 28/Nov/12
5ft 7in isn't really that short for a man. It's average or only just below average in most countries.

Bud: Most ridiculous post ever! He was 5'7" or damn close to it!
Bud says on 15/Nov/12
James Dean was 5'5" - Natalie Wood and Pier Angeli were 5' [that's why they were associated with Dean; he never towered over them]

James: 5' 6''

You can look up his license. It's not his actual license, but the info seems correct.
leonari says on 8/Aug/12
I totally agree Shredder. I think Rob downgraded him twice. Now it could be accurate...But even 5'6.5 is an option for Dean
Dean says on 6/Aug/12
In an interview, Julie Harris said he was 5'6".....
