You’ve Got to Walk It Like You Talk It or You’ll Lose That Beat (1971)

Carter Fields (Zalman King) stars as a young New Yorker failing in marriage, in his job, and in his search for sex, in this forgotten bad-taste highly irreverent counterculture comedy.

His search leads him to working in the New York City Traffic Control bureau, becoming a revolutionary and doing commercials for an ad agency. Despite all this, in the end it takes a small incident to show Carter life’s meaning.

The soundtrack by Steely Dan was issued on an LP years later.
