This has been reviewed here but not in a specific thread, if I'm not mistaken. In case merge. It's a remake of High Sierra. I think I saw HS in the '80's and was bored, melodramatic just as this one. But here the problem is that Palance doesn't carry on his face any sign of weakness that Bogart can't hide under his hardboiled crust. So seeing him falling for the cripple girl adds worse to bad. And if afterwards seeing him  falling for a Shelley Winters is already incredible, his falling for her theatricals is nothing short of disgusting. This guy is playing a master criminal and can't be so naive. And right after that he also tell her about the cripple girl so better than her: this is probably having some bad rsults plotwise but I'm not interested: I just couldn't go beyond this point, this is violence to credibility in an extreme amateurish way. And I won't check on HS to see how these points of plot were developed.
