Kansas City Confidential, what does it have to do with Reservoir Dogs?

So i went shopping in the cheap section of the movies in a movie store and i see this movie called Kansas City Confidential starring Lee Van Cleef. And on the front it has a eye catching quote from Leonard Maltin stating, “Quentin Tarrantino must have seen this one prior to scripting Reservoir Dogs.” So i was wondering if anybody has seen it and what connection it has with Reservior Dogs?

havent seen it but if it stars lee van cleef chances are Tarantino has seen it. So it probably has some small connection with reservoir dogs or shares something which could have served as inspiration
