You've Got to Walk It Like You Talk It or You'll Lose That Beat

You've Got to Walk It Like You Talk It or You'll Lose That Beat is a 1971 comedy-drama film directed by Peter Locke. It involves a young hippie and his search for the meaning of life while in Central Park. Its soundtrack includes some of the earliest released music by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, the duo who later formed the core of the group Steely Dan. The film also stars Richard Pryor in an early role playing his signature "wino" character, and actor/director Robert Downey Sr.

The soundtrack, "performed by The Original Soundtrack" was [1] released in 1971, with re-releases in the later 1970s and after.

Future film director Wes Craven, then working at a New York City post-production company, made his professional feature debut as the film's editor.[2]
