The usual suspects for this include:

   http://easygui.sourceforge.net/

   http://www.cosc.canterbury.ac.nz/greg.ewing/python_gui/

   http://www.averdevelopment.com/python/EasyDialogs.html


Any of those will suffice, I suspect. Personally, I use my
own winsys.dialogs:

   http://timgolden.me.uk/python/winsys/dialogs.html

which have the very slight advantage of allowing dragging-and-dropping
files from explorer into textedit controls and/or having a button which
brings up the FileOpen (or any other) system dialog. If you do want
to use it, I suggest the svn trunk which will work for Py2 or Py3
(courtesy of 2to3).
