We're always on the hunt for another classic to watch (or re-watch) come movie night, and there's a resource out there making it easier than ever to find those old favorites. A whole trove of Hollywood treasures are now available to stream on Amazon Prime, including classic movies starring some of the most recognizable names of yesteryear. According to Amazon, "Over 20 classic, award winning films, some of which are being digitized for the first time, are now available on Prime Video. These classics include Holiday, starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, The Talk of the Town, and Sahara starring Humphrey Bogart."

In addition to Holiday (1938), The Talk of the Town (1942), and Sahara (1943), many other films from the golden age of Hollywood are available, including Some Like It Hot (1959), starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Marilyn Monroe; When You're in Love (1937), starring Grace Moore and Cary Grant; His Girl Friday (1940), starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell; Pal Joey (1957), starring Rita Hayworth, Frank Sinatra, and Kim Novak; and Ladies of the Chorus (1949), starring Marilyn Monroe.

Another film currently available is Till the Clouds Roll By, a 1946 movie musical about the life of composer Jerome Kern, in which Judy Garland, Lena Horne, Frank Sinatra, Dinah Shore, and Angela Lansbury all appear (and sing and dance too, of course). Music in My Heart (1940), starring Tony Martin and Rita Hayworth, and The Story of Esther Costello (1957), starring Joan Crawford, have been digitized for the first time as part of this initiative. A full list of these classic titles (all available via Amazon Prime Video) can be found on Amazon. Pop the popcorn, and queue up any of these films for a movie night to remember.
