The Carnival Stripper’s Reward Was — Degradation!

From the back:

When a marijuana scandal makes life intolerable for young Gay Leslie in her home town, she runs off with a carnival show as ballyhoo girl. Soon, in her innocence, she succumbs to the sweet talk and gorgeous body of Apollo, the strong-man with the show. The the glamor of carnival life quickly disappears, to be replaced by sordidness and cruelty. For Apollo turns out to be a mighty lover–but also a jealous, calculating madman!
