emacs 21.1 question

Using GNU emacs 21.1 on HP-UX 11.0, compiled with HP's ansi c.

I have a user that wants to have the menu picks dealing with filenames etc
to do the same thing the keystroke would have done.

For example, 

File>Open File 

pops up a file select dialog box and lets the user click on the file he wants.

Whereas 

M-x find-file 

prompts the user in the minibuffer.  This is the behavior he wants even from the
menu.  This is how v 20.7 did it.  Is there a variable or whatever I can set to
get the old behavior?

Thanks!

tom
