If you can play region 2 DVDs you can find copies at amazon.co.uk (and even amazon.com) for pretty cheap - at least a lot cheaper than the OOP Elite disc. As Kristy said in that e-mail, the UK release was pretty much public domain. I read at imdb that the DVD was even given away free with some film magazine at one point. I haven't seen the UK version but I doubt the image is any better than the Elite disc, which wasn't great.
I bought a used Elite disc about 6 or 7 years ago for a much more reasonable price than it's going for now. (Under $20.) I like the movie okay but it's not worth those secondhand prices. I'd gladly upgrade, though, if this fan edition ever sees the light of day.
