Can you elaborate? A prisoner in a prison? What is being robbed?

Thanks for  quick reply. The movie is a western probably from the late 60s or early 70s . It may have been a sheriff office that had a jail or a prison. This inmate cell was adjacent to a safety box or safe  and ge could count the combination clicks.  The box was being robbed and  the robbers did not let him out until he said the number of clicks

Judging from the fourth paragraph in this plot description, I'd say A MAN CALLED SLEDGE is your movie:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Man_Called_Sledge

And it's actually viewable on YouTube:

Peter  I have another question about prison movies. This prisoner is an old man that is a painter.  He paints the warden and the warden destroys the paintings, then he chops one of his hands. I've looked in Lock up, Escape from Alcatraz and the Shawshank Redemption but it appears is none on them

Hmmm. I think it's got to be ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ; read the second paragraph of this plot description -- it even mentions Doc hacking off his fingers:
