The Man with the Golden Gun

Character mistake: James Bond states that the man that fell in the liquid helium would raise the temperature. Since humans have a body temperature of only 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, falling into a tank of liquid helium at -456 degrees would bring his body down to the same temperature as the surrounding helium in no more than five seconds.

Suggested correction: The human body is mostly water which has a high specific heat capacity, much higher than liquid helium, so the amount of heat absorbed by the helium in order to cool the body to near absolute zero would easily raise its temperature well above absolute zero.

Revealing mistake: During the fight scene in the belly dancer's room, Bond spins the bald guy around to avoid being hit by a chair. When the bald guy gets hit in the back with the chair, you can see a large rectangle of padding under his jacket.

Answer: I haven't been able to find any information on its whereabouts so my guess would be that ended up like most movie props do. Either as a souvenir for one of the people attached to the movie, (actor, director, etc.) in storage (in case it could be recycled as a prop in another movie) or simply discarded when it wasn't needed anymore.
